Myrick Conservation Center of the BVA

Display Event Calendar


The event was held on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM.

This beautiful site is part of the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance property in Pocopson Township (Route 842). Explore 300+ acres of nature trails, fall foliage and historic barns and buildings. Some structures will be open exclusively for our club.

From their web site: "The property contains a Quaker barn which dates to the beginning of the 19th century and contains several additions to the original building. It also has a rare wood silo from the early 1900s, the only such silo remaining intact in Chester County. Also on the property is a spring house dating to the Revolutionary War period. Presently much of the property is used for agriculture under a conservation plan that dates to 1981. Crops include sunflowers, sorghum, corn, soybeans, wheat, alfalfa, and hay. The small streams which begin on the property are protected with tree plantings to reduce overland runoff and filter out contaminants."

The Myrick Center site is on the web here.

Here it is on a map.

Carpoolers will meet in Exton at 8:30. The group will rendezvous at the Myrick Center at 9:00 am.  If you are driving west from West Chester on Rt 842, turn left into the parking area and meet the group there.
