VOLUNTEER AND EAGLE SCOUT OPPORTUNITIES
Volunteers are critical to the day-to-day operation of a municipality. In addition to municipal staff, the Township regularly relies on over two hundred volunteers. Approximately half of those people offer time helping to maintain Township parks and trails. There’s no question – East Bradford Township could not function as it does today without the generous help of local residents. To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact Rich Phifer.
Eagle Scout candidates have played an integral part in improving East Bradford’s parkland. If you are an Eagle Scout candidate looking for a project, we have created a list of Current Eagle Scout Project Opportunities to explore with you, but we are also open to ideas you may wish to share. Please contact Rich Phifer for more information.
COMPREHENSIVE AND REGIONAL PLANNING
There are a variety of Township and regional plans that address parks, open space and trails:
- East Bradford Township Open Space, Recreation, and Environmental Resources Plan

- Brandywine Creek Greenway Concept and Action Plan

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 whitetail deer hunting season. Current Club rules and regulations are available. Contact Rich Phifer for additional information.
If any person has a mobility question or concern pertaining to park access, please contact Rich Phifer.
