The Brandywine-Struble Greenway, located 40 miles west of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is in the early stages of planning with a focus on the historic, cultural, and natural heritage of the Brandywine Valley. This session will look at "how to keep it green" by projecting, planning, partnering, and paying for trails with examples from both projects. The presentation will highlight attractions and unique natural and cultural features that will garner trail support.
