Adopt-a-Stream Workshop- FULL

March 23 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

This event is full. We hope to see you at an Adopt-a-Stream workshop later this year!

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

The Gunpowder Valley Conservancy (GVC) is looking for volunteers, age 18+, to join our Adopt-a-Stream Program. It’s easy to participate:

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

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

Location: Faith Lutheran Church, 8 Sherwood Rd, Cockeysville, MD 21030

In the workshop, you will learn about the 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
