Gunpowder Watershed Forum Brings People Together to Discuss Shared Vision of Clean Water
Is the Gunpowder Falls your happy place? Do you value clean drinking water for the greater Baltimore area? Are you concerned about how climate change is and will be affecting communities in our part of the Chesapeake Bay? If so, your voice is needed to join the discussion at the inaugural Gunpowder Watershed Forum on Wednesday, June 15th from 5 – 9 PM.
Hosted by the Gunpowder Valley Conservancy (GVC), a Baltimore County-based land trust and watershed restoration non-profit, the Gunpowder Watershed Forum is intended to be a first step towards building stronger collaborations among non-profit organizations, government agencies, community associations, local schools, and anyone else who values the land that drains into the Big and Little Gunpowder Falls, our direct connections to the Chesapeake Bay.
This event is FREE and includes dinner (vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore options). The event is limited to 75 participants and will be held at the outdoor pavilion at Baltimore County Game and Fish Protective Association, a conservation club situated on 43 acres of mostly forested land in Carney and includes a tributary to the Big Gunpowder Falls.
