The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County (TLC) and the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance (BRC) announce the merger of these two regional leaders in land and water conservation. Upon completion of the merger, expected to occur before the end of April 2022, TLC will be merged into BRC.

“This is truly an example of one plus one equaling three,” said Ed Camelli, chairman of The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County’s Board of Trustees. “Collectively, BRC and TLC have over 100 years of environmental protection experience, have preserved thousands of acres of open space and established miles of trails, cleaned and maintained miles of streams, and educated thousands of young people to be stewards of the land. By combining resources, more land will be preserved, more waterways protected, and more children educated.”

“TLC and BRC are natural collaborators with a shared vision for our region,” said Andrew Homsey, president of the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance Board of Directors. “We look forward to joining forces to create an even more robust organization with strong environmental education and stewardship programs.’

BRC will assume all obligations and commitments that TLC has with landowners and municipalities pertaining to land protection, educational programming, and stewardship work.
