Brandywine River Restoration Trust (BRRT) is driven by the compassion of concerned neighbors, citizens, and organizations wanting to restore the Brandywine River to the clean, protected, and bountiful river it once was over 300 years ago, before 11 now obsolete dams were erected. These dams prevent the migration of aquatic creatures including one of the most important links to the entire ecosystem, the American Shad. Without these fish, and without a free-flowing river much of the wildlife that once naturally cleaned the river cannot survive.
We believe in equitable opportunity for all. The Brandywine River should be accessible for everyone to enjoy and we work tirelessly to make this happen. Please donate to help us:
- Increase diversity of flora and fauna such as birds who prey on shad
- Improve recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and swimming
- Provide equitable access to natural resources in the river corridor
- Reduce severe flooding caused by climate change
Your donation will double! We have a limited opportunity to double what we raise. The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation grant will match all donations, dollar for dollar.
There has never been a better time to make a difference in our environment! Together we can #RestoretheBrandywine!
