The Gunpowder Valley Conservancy, a Baltimore County-based land trust and watershed restoration non-profit, is seeking volunteers of all ages. We have 20+ opportunities for volunteers to participate in environmental stewardship projects this Spring! All events are eligible for community service credit.

Events include:

  • Reforestation Projects(Tree Planting and Tree Maintenance): Everyone knows the benefits of planting trees! Our tree planting events are a great way for families and Scout groups to improve our environment. We also host tree maintenance events where volunteers remove invasive plants and make sure newly-planted trees are growing properly
  • Rain Garden and Edible Bayscape workshops provide hands-on experience with Bay-Wise landscaping practices. No gardening experience necessary! Great way to learn about the native plants you can incorporate into your own yard.
  • Our Adopt-a-Stream workshop educates residents on how to organize successful stream clean-ups and monitor stream hazards.
