    Join us this year as the Brandywine Conservancy, East Bradford Township, and West Bradford Township team up for a neighborhood collaboration! Inspired by the beauty of the Brandywine Greenway, the Annual Brandywine River Cleanup will encompass the banks of the Brandywine River along Harmony Hill Covered Bridge and Brandywine Meadows Preserve Trail. Volunteers are advised to wear hats, long pants, heavy shoes or boots, and sunscreen. Gloves and trash bags will be provided. Lunch will be provided at each cleanup site at noon. This event is appropriate for children over the age of five.

    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.
