Planning phase — Protecting and Restoring Places of Ecological Significance (Brandywine-Christina and Middle Schuylkill Clusters)

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Stroud Center scientists participated with several collaborators in the development of restoration and protection implementation plans for targeted watersheds in the Brandywine-Christina and Middle Schuylkill clusters in the Delaware River basin. These implementation plans defined conservation priorities and goals, identified strategies needed to achieve those goals, and designed monitoring programs to measure short- and long-term progress toward those goals. The combination of priorities, goals, strategies, and monitoring provides important, multi-organizational structure to help focus conservation efforts funded by the William Penn Foundation.
