**Please note the NEW location for this workshop (5/21/17)**

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.

NEW location: Loch Raven Branch of Baltimore County Public Library, Meeting Room, 1046 Taylor Avenue, Towson MD 21286

The Stream Watch Program is funded by Baltimore County Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability, and the Gunpowder Valley Conservancy.
