As a highlight of exciting preparations for the upcoming 250th anniversary of the United States of America, the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is partnering with the U.S. Semiquincentennial Commission, USA250, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, and other organizations to create the “DAR Pathway of the Patriots” along the Schuylkill River Trail, a scenic multi-use trail in Southeastern Pennsylvania that connects the nation’s oldest botanical garden in Philadelphia with Valley Forge National Historical Park.
As an extension of the 76 trees planted at Independence National Historical Park during the Dillon Administration, this project affords the privilege of planting 250 trees along the trail and adopting them in memory of Revolutionary War Patriots. These 250 Patriots will be featured in a companion online resource in order to raise awareness of those who achieved American Independence.
DAR will be the primary financial sponsor of the DAR Pathway of the Patriots project, and will receive branding and signage promotion as a result of this highly commemorative opportunity. DAR states, chapters, clubs and individuals are welcome to adopt a tree in memory of a Patriot. The 250 trees and their respective Patriots will be available for reservation on a first-come, first-served basis.
