COMPREHENSIVE AND REGIONAL PLANNING

There are a variety of Township and regional plans that address parks, open space and trails:

 

STEWARDSHIP ASSESSMENTS

The Township has also worked with Natural Lands Trust to prepare stewardship assessments for a number of its parks and properties:

 

BRANDYWINE VALLEY ARCHERY CLUB

Overpopulation of whitetail deer is creating an imbalance of the natural ecosystem in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The Brandywine Valley Archery Club (BVAC) exists to provide quality deer management services to property owners in Southeastern Pennsylvania through managed hunting on selected property. This will be accomplished by proper selection of qualified, safe, responsible archery hunters conducting managed archery hunts within the region on selected dates throughout the white tail deer hunting season. Current Club rules and regulations are available.  Contact Rich Phifer for additional information.

 

VOLUNTEER AND EAGLE SCOUT OPPORTUNITIES

Many people have no idea how critical volunteers are to the day-to-day operation of a municipality.  East Bradford Township has a paid staff that consists of 13 people (7 public works employees and 6 managerial / administrative employees).  However, in addition to these individuals, the Township relies on over 200 volunteers on a regular basis.  Approximately half of those people offer time to help maintain Township parks, open spaces, and trails (the other half serve on a variety of boards and commissions).  There’s no question – East Bradford Township would not function as it does today without the generous help of local residents.  To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact Rich Phifer.

 

PARK ACCESS

If any person has a mobility question or concern pertaining to park access, please contact Rich Phifer.
