Engage Communities

Community efforts lead to positive change.

GVC was founded in 1989 as a grassroots organization to bring people together with the shared goal of protecting the natural beauty, resources, and history of the Gunpowder Watershed. Today, we are guided by our vision of a Gunpowder Watershed that consists of healthy lands, healthy waterways, and healthy communities. Our free educational workshops and initiatives help us connect the public with the necessary tools to make a difference for future generations.
