POSTPONED: Brandywine River Clean Up

POSTPONED: Brandywine River Clean Up

This event is postponed, check back soon for new dates and information.

More than 500,000 residents in Pennsylvania and Delaware rely on the Brandywine as the source of their drinking water. Each year, the Annual Brandywine River Cleanup helps to ensure cleaner water for communities that rely on the Brandywine as a source for their drinking water, a healthier habitat for wildlife, and a safer environment for recreational activities. Since the event's inception, volunteers have removed more than 30 tons of trash from the banks of the Brandywine between Lenape and the Delaware state line.

Excitingly, 2020 is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day as well as 10th anniversary of the Brandywine Creek Greenway. We hope that you’ll celebrate these momentous milestones by joining us as the Brandywine Conservancy teams up with multiple townships along the Brandywine River for a neighborhood cleanup collaboration! Inspired by the beauty of the Brandywine Greenway, cleanups will encompass the banks of the Brandywine River at specific locations, find where your closest cleanup is below. Then, join us at the Brandywine Conservancy campus for lunch and celebration!
