The Gunpowder Valley Conservancy 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 twice a year.
- 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, Eagle scout projects, churches or school groups. In the workshop, you will learn about the threats to the health of the Gunpowder watershed and how to help to protect and improve our local creeks and rivers. Topics will include how to safely remove trash from the waterways, how to properly identify problems such as sewer breaks and illicit discharges, and who to contact to report such problems.
What to bring: Pen, notepad, water bottle, and if good weather, your rubber boots for stream wading, warm clothing, and gloves.
Directions: Take 695 to Exit 29 A-Cromwell Bridge Rd. At end of ramp, turn left onto Cromwell Bridge Rd.(east). Go 1 mile beyond Loch Raven High School. Turn left into the Sherwood Farm entrance at the Cromwell Valley Park/Sherwood Farm sign. Cross the bridge and bear right at the Recreation and Parks sign. Continue on driveway to the gravel parking area next to the Sherwood House (stone mansion). Enter in the second door on the left.
