Adopt-a-Stream Workshop

June 1 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Make a difference for future generations by adopting a stream and restoring the health of our waterways!

GVC is looking for volunteers, age 18+, to join our Adopt-a-Stream Program. It’s easy to adopt a stream! Stream Adoption simply requires you to:

  • Attend this training
  • Agree to clean your adopted stream segment
  • Send us your trash data
  • Watch for and report stream hazards

Adopt-a-Stream is great for individuals, families, neighborhoods, scout groups, congregations, or school groups. We can help you find an adoptable stream segment in the Gunpowder Watershed, or you may have one in mind.


Workshop Location: St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 12022 Jerusalem Rd, Kingsville, MD 21087

In the workshop, you will learn about threats to the health of the Gunpowder Watershed and how to help protect and improve our local creeks and rivers. Topics include:

  • Understanding stormwater’s effect on the health of waterways and landscapes
  • Properly identifying and reporting stream hazards (e.g. sewer breaks, illicit discharges) and impairments
  • Best practices for leading volunteers in a stream clean-up

Funding for this project made possible by Baltimore County Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability
