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 28,000 trees have been planted throughout the Gunpowder Watershed by enthusiastic volunteers over the past 26 years, and we need YOUR help to plant even more!
This event is rain or shine.
What to bring: Remember to wear boots, pants, long sleeve shirt, hat, gloves, and bring rain gear and water bottle. Water jug and a light snack will be provided.
Location: Maryland State Game & Fish Protective Association, 8735 Honeygo Blvd, Perry Hall, MD 21128. Please note that some GPS devices have problems with this address. From White Marsh Mall area, head north on Honeygo Blvd past the Route 43/White Marsh Blvd intersection. Continue on Honeygo Blvd until you see Joppaview Elementary School on your right. Turn right onto the dirt road immediately after the school and continue to the Game & Fish parking lot. If you get to the Ebenezer Road traffic light, you’ve gone too far on Honeygo Blvd.
