Baseline documentation reports for conservation easements to include GIS Mapping ServicesBaseline Documentation
The Brandywine Conservancy was founded in 1967 by local residents concerned about the possible massive industrial development of their largely rural area of Chadds Ford and the impacts of that development to the water supply for communities in southeastern Pennsylvania and northern Delaware. The first conservation easements, protecting more than five and one-half miles along the Brandywine, were granted in 1969. Today, the Conservancy holds more than 430 conservation easements on more than 34,000 acres in Chester and Delaware counties, Pennsylvania and in New Castle County, Delaware. The Conservancy is a leading local and national advocate for responsible land use, open space preservation and water protection.
