22nd-Annual Brandywine River Cleanup
Saturday, April 18, 9 a.m.
The Young Friends of the Brandywine Conservancy will host their 22nd Annual Brandywine River Cleanup. Help to clean over 12 miles of the Brandywine from Lenape outside West Chester to Thompson's Bridge in Delaware.

The Brandywine is the drinking water source for the City of Wilmington and parts of New Castle County, Delaware. Cleaning up the river and its banks is important to all who use, live near, or are affected by the Brandywine.

The Young Friends have hosted an annual river clean up each April since 1994. To date, they have removed over 32 tons of trash, including car batteries, ladders, a metal bed frame a surfboard, and hundreds of tires.

To volunteer or for more information, contact Kathy Freney Smith at 610.388.8315 or Volunteers are advised to wear hats, long pants, heavy shoes or boots, and sunscreen. Gloves and trash bags will be provided. This event is acceptable for children over the age of five. Groups are welcome.

About Young Friends
Young Friends of the Brandywine is a membership group and volunteer committee of young adults dedicated to furthering the goals of the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art.

By informing other young adults and their families about the Conservancy, by involving them in our programs, and by soliciting our peers for contributions and planned gifts, we seek to develop future volunteer leaders of the Conservancy, expand and diversify the Conservancy's membership base, and raise funds for its operating programs and for ongoing Young Friends activities.

Becoming a Young Friend is an additional option for Brandywine Conservancy members. To join the Conservancy and become a Young Friends member, click here.
