Brandywine River Restoration Trust

The Brandywine River is a historically and culturally significant river that flows through southeastern Pennsylvania and northern Delaware. The Brandywine River Restoration Trust aims to restore the river’s free-flowing state and bring back the American Shad, which has been threatened by industrial dams along 12 miles of the river in Delaware. The trust is a cross-section of educational organizations, non-profits, governmental agencies, and private citizens that share a common goal of restoring the river and its ecosystem to bring back the species.
