Meet the River Rat at the Brandywine Conservancy!

Meet the River Rat at the Brandywine Conservancy!

August 15, 2013

Unknown to many visitors, the Brandywine Conservancy has its own mascot. It is the Brandywine River Rat.

The River Rat began as a symbol to celebrate the Conservancy’s preservation of open land at the King Ranch in Chester County. The River Rat mascot has been in place since the 1980s and to this day is a representation of supporting land preservation in the Brandywine Valley. While a unique character, the River Rat pin is worn with pride to let others know that the wearer is dedicated to helping preserve the natural resources and the artistic heritage of the beautiful Brandywine Valley.
