Promoting restoration, conservation, and enjoyment of the natural resources of the Brandywine and Red Clay watersheds

BRC Tree Planting

On Saturday, November 4th, 56 volunteers planted over 300 trees and 60 shrubs to establish a 35 foot wide stream buffer along the upper east branch Red Clay Creek. The volunteers came from Boy Scout Troops 6 and 22, Kennett High School, West Chester University, Victory Brewing Company, and Brandywine Red Clay Alliance. The buffer completed a stream restoration project that improves over 1,500 feet of the creek. This site is upstream of two other restoration projects and the three together now protect nearly one mile of stream. The project was funded with a grant from National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and support from SUEZ Water, the Stroud Water Research Center, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and CSX Railroad. Thank you to all of the volunteers and funders of this project!
