Spotted Lanternfly Fall Update

Adult stage Spotted Lanternfly (SLF) are being seen throughout Chester County this fall and will remain through our first hard frost. If you have adult SLF on your property, watch for egg masses that will be deposited in October and November and can be easily removed. Removing egg masses is a highly effective control method. To learn more about how to manage SLF check out a video recording of our workshop on SLF Management held this May at our YouTube Channel.

BRC Receives National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Grants

BRC is pleased to announce that we were chosen to receive two grants from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation- one to complete our work to reduce sediment pollution and improve water quality in the Upper East Branch of the Red Clay Creek Watershed in East Marlborough Township, and another to complete a watershed assessment and restoration plan for the Lower West Branch Red Clay Creek Watershed from Route 1 downstream to its confluence with the east branch near Marshall’s Bridge.

Plum Run Work Continues

Work resumed on our Plum Run Stream restoration this month with the beginning of the final Phase 3 at Lenape and Tigue Roads. The stream restoration will remove nearly 2,000 cubic yards of sediment that was deposited over 100 years ago behind the old Strode’s Mill Dam and regrade the stream banks to prevent any new stream erosion. Our partner with this project is East Bradford Township who is working to develop the Plum Run Preserve as natural open space with trails and historic interpretation. With the completion of this project, nearly two miles of Plum Run have been restored to improve water quality and aquatic habitats. This project is funded by a grant from PADEP Growing Greener program and Chester County Municipal Grants Program
