Victory Brewing Co. — which provided refreshments at the 2012 Stormwater Symposium reception — awarded the Guardians of the Brandywine with its Headwaters Grant. Guardians of the Brandywine used the grant to promote creek stewardship through a photography contest and educational session on stream monitoring. Check out the winning photos and a video on the program.

Brandywine Valley Association also received a grant to host a community tree planting and restore eroding streambanks in Parkesburg, Pa. “The pure water flowing from our local watersheds allows us to create the flavorful beers that we are so proud of,” said Victory Brewing Co. President Bill Covaleski. “Therefore, it was an obvious step for us to give back and protect this vital resource which was so generously provided to us.”
