In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Brandywine Creek Greenway, the Brandywine Conservancy is excited to announce a new photo contest titled “Experience the Brandywine,” running now through October 25, 2020. The Conservancy invites the public to submit their photos that best capture the beauty of the Greenway and the many reasons why this region is such a special place to call home.
A regional planning initiative of the Brandywine Conservancy, the Greenway is a 40-mile long conservation and recreation corridor along both branches of the Brandywine—from the rural community of Honey Brook in Pennsylvania to the City of Wilmington in Delaware. Since 2010, the Brandywine Conservancy and its Greenway partners have successfully created new and improved access to open space, parks, trails, river access points and area attractions, resulting in more connected and sustainable communities.
Submitted photos can highlight one of the many fun recreational activities in the Greenway—from hiking, biking, paddling, fishing and more—or feature some of the breathtaking views of protected open spaces and historical sites within the Greenway. Three winning photographs will be selected by a panel of judges to receive one of three prize packs featuring products from Patagonia, TREK and The Whip Tavern (totaling up to $600 value). There is no cost to participate in the photo contest and all are eligible to enter. A complete list of rules and regulations, as well as instructions on how to submit the photos, can be found at www.brandywine.org/photo-contest.
The winning photographs will be announced at the culminating virtual celebration for the Greenway’s 10th anniversary on Thursday, October 29, at 6 p.m. All are invited to join as the Brandywine toasts to the Greenway’s first decade of partnership and success with a unique craft beer and artisan jerky tasting experience hosted by Victory Brewing Company and Righteous Felon Jerky Cartel. Following opening remarks by a representative from the William Penn Foundation—a generous funder of the Greenway since its inception—and a brief look at the Greenway’s exciting decade of accomplishments, participants will be guided through six pairings of beer and jerky led by Bill Covaleski, co-founder of Victory Brewing Company, and Brendan Cawley from Righteous Felon Jerky Cartel. The beer and jerky pairing kits are $40 each and contain six 12oz. beers and six 1oz. jerky samples.
