The Brandywine/Christina Basin provides 100 million gallons of drinking water per day to over 500,000 people in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. To help contribute to the health of the people and animals that use the water, The Brandywine Conservancy set a goal to plant 50,000 trees by 2017.
To bring this plan to fruition, the Conservancy needs your support!
The Conservancy is calling on volunteers to help with two separate plantings. No experience is necessary. However, the Conservancy asks that volunteers bring shovels, mallets, and gloves. The first planting is on Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014, at the Pocopson Home in West Chester. The second planting is on Saturday, Oct. 18, 2014, at the Wyebrook Farm in Honey Brook. Snacks will be provided at each planting. Both plantings start at 8:30 a.m. and last until early afternoon.
