The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The mission of the Guardians of the Brandywine is to protect, preserve and enhance our common waters and other natural resources of the Upper East Branch of the Brandywine Creek Watershed.
We are an all volunteer watershed organization whose vision is a healthy and clean watershed that serves as a catalyst to engage us and member communities into conservation, education and preservation activities that, in turn, benefit the watershed.
With every activity we pursue, the Guardians strive to uphold and improve the quality of our watershed. We believe:
That a healthy watershed is a vital resource which sustains and improves our quality of life.
That clean water is an intrinsic component of healthy living for all forms of life.
In proactive and engaging activities to promote, protect and preserve the ecological diversity of our watershed.
That investing in clean water and a healthy watershed generates healthy living dividends for future generations.
