Community service learning hours available. Perfect for students, Scout troops, religious affiliation groups, corporate volunteer groups, families, individuals, 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!
This event is rain or shine.
