Keystone 10 Million Trees

BRC is pleased to join the Keystone 10 Million Trees Partnership in an ambitious endeavor to plant 10 million trees throughout Pennsylvania by 2025. We’re partnering with the Chester County Conservation District to distribute trees to Chester County landowners. Planting trees and shrubs adjacent to streams (the riparian corridor) helps to improve water quality by stabilizing eroding stream banks, provide shade for cooler water temperatures, provide leaf litter and organic debris for aquatic life and to filter nutrients from entering streams. BRC will receive trees annually to plant along past and current stream restoration projects. To learn more about a fall tree distribution contact the Chester County Conservation District.

Get ready for summer!

Please visit our Summer Camp 2021 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.
