First State National Historical Park (NHP) preserves and protects Delaware's nationally significant cultural resources, as well as a substantial native biodiversity, across the seven sites. The Brandywine Valley unit specifically, a roughly 1,100-acre area of rolling hills, beautiful agricultural land, and vital watersheds, is one of the few, large, protected areas in northern Delaware and southeastern Pennsylvania. This area has a variety of habitat types including numerous wetlands, forested areas, and meadows. Learn more about the animals and plants at First State NHP!
