2021 GVC Gifts

Give the gift of healthy forests and clean water this holiday season! GVC is excited to share several creative ways you can support your local land trust and watershed restoration non-profit.

Share the beauty of the Gunpowder Watershed and support local artist, Mary Magenta. Her 2022 Watershed Moments calendars and note cards are available for sale online. Mary will make a donation to GVC with each purchase.


When you make a tax-deductible donation to GVC’s Friends of the Forest, you are directly supporting our work of expanding native forest and wildlife habitat within the Gunpowder Watershed.

  • $25 will nurture one tree
  • $100 will nurture a grove
  • $250 will nurture a forest

In return, we will send you a commemorative certificate to acknowledge your support. A perfect gift to celebrate people in your life who appreciate the beauty of the Gunpowder Falls and the Chesapeake Bay and/or are environmental stewards in their own community.


Keep exploring local trails in 2022 in our sustainable Explore the Gunpowder Watershed challenge t-shirts! Each shirt features recreation icons and the outline of the Gunpowder Watershed and its main rivers. The shirts are made by Recover, a sustainable apparel company, out of a 50/50 cotton poly yarn from recycled plastic bottles and upcycled cotton.
We are excited to offer our remaining 2021 Explore the Gunpowder Watershed challenge t-shirts for a $20 donation to the Gunpowder Valley Conservancy. Let others know that YOU support land preservation and clean water in Maryland. Our remaining inventory will be updated on the order form for women’s (dark green, v-cut) and men’s (light green) shirts.
