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

Myrick Conservation Center Visitation

Beginning Saturday, August 8, the Myrick Conservation Center will once again be open (to humans and dogs!) seven days a week from sunrise to dusk. Please note that when visiting the sunflowers, we ask that you not cut/pick the flowers, and to not walk through the fields, as this damages the crop. For more information about visiting, please see our Before You Visit page.

Anson B. Nixon Park Stream Restoration

Stream restoration work on Red Clay Creek at Nixon Park finished up last week for the summer and will resume in fall/winter when grant funding is available. Look for tree and shrub plantings this fall in the riparian areas to further stabilize the stream banks.
This project will reduce sediment, nitrogen and phosphorous pollution, improve fish and wildlife habitat and add to the 4,800 feet of completed stream restoration projects on the Red Clay Creek. For more information click here.

Get ready for summer!

Please visit our Summer Camp 2020 page for more information.

The 318-acre Myrick Center contains trails for walking and horseback riding as well as areas for picnicking, bird watching and enjoying the natural environment.
