Delaware County Recognizes Brandywine Conservancy For Preserving Land, Protecting Water

In honor of the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art’s 50th Anniversary, the Delaware County Council presented a resolution on Wednesday commemorating the organization’s commitment to preserving land and protecting water since 1967.

Open space is a priority to Delaware County Council and they continuously work with county departments, municipalities and organizations to create and preserve open space—giving residents areas to exercise and enjoy nature, which enhances their overall quality of life.

The Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art is committed to this same belief that preservation and wise use of natural and cultural resources provide health, education, beauty and increased quality of life for individuals and communities.

The Council’s resolution commends the Brandywine Conservancy and Museum of Art’s work over the past 50 years to assure that present and future generations have open space, dependable and clean water sources, historical sites and important works of American art to enjoy.

Ellen Ferretti, Director of the Brandywine Conservancy, accepted the resolution from Council Vice Chairman, Colleen P. Morrone, during the Council’s public meeting held at the Brandywine Battlefield Visitor Center in Chadds Ford, PA.

“We are thrilled to receive this resolution from Delaware County Council honoring the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art's 50th Anniversary,” commented Ferretti. “The Council recognized both our decades of work toward preserving the land and water of the Brandywine Valley-- including community engagement and historical and cultural preservation-- and the Museum’s dedication and success in our collections of American art, with a focus on the work of the Wyeth family. We look forward to the years ahead working with our many partners in Delaware County.”
