Brandywine Red Clay Alliance, formed in 2015 from a merger of the nation’s two oldest small watershed conservation organizations, is your local leader in protecting the environment. We organize volunteers for action, connect students of all ages and recreation enthusiasts to the outdoors, improve the quality and quantity of water, and unite our members in standing tall for the natural resources of our communities.

Our work began in 1945, when a handful of concerned citizens realized poorly treated wastewater and soil erosion posed serious threats to our creeks and water supplies.

We’ve made tremendous strides in the decades since but there’s still much to do as development continues exploding in the Brandywine and Red Clay Watersheds.

So what are we doing?

How can you help?

All of us are naturally inspired to protect and conserve what we love and what we understand. This is the heart of our mission and spurs our momentum.

We invite you to share in this vision and join Brandywine Red Clay Alliance today. You will help us set a course for the greenest future.
