Explore the Gunpowder

Get Outdoors for Clean Water

The Gunpowder Watershed is our connection to the Chesapeake Bay. It is full of history, beauty, and important wildlife habitat. It is also the source of over 60% of the Baltimore area's drinking water.

This spring, enjoy the ultimate staycation while helping Gunpowder Valley Conservancy (GVC) raise $25,000 in support of land preservation and watershed restoration!

There are several ways you can participate in the Explore the Gunpowder Watershed Challenge from May 1 - June 14, 2023. We are currently finalizing the Challenge details and hope to share registration information by April.
