Event Navigation

Plant trees for cleaner air and water in Baltimore County! 

We are looking for student volunteers and adults who care about the Earth, our watershed, and the Chesapeake Bay!  Do you like being outside in nature and don’t mind working hard?  Join us, and make a difference for future generations.

Community service learning hours available. Perfect for students, Scout troops, religious affiliation groups, corporate volunteer groups, families, singles and neighbors! Children ages 8 years and up must be accompanied by an adult.

More than 29,000 trees have been planted throughout the Gunpowder Watershed by enthusiastic volunteers over the past 28 years, and we need YOUR help to plant even more!
