The Gunpowder River is a treasure to us all. From brook trout to rockfish, the Gunpowder sustains a rich variety of wildlife as it flows from the hilly Piedmont of northern Baltimore County down to the sandy shores of the Chesapeake Bay. Home to Prettyboy and Loch Raven Reservoirs, the Gunpowder watershed also sustains us by supplying over 60% of the greater Baltimore area’s drinking water supply. For 31 years, the Gunpowder Valley Conservancy (GVC) has preserved the character, history and environmental integrity in the Gunpowder watershed. It is with a heavy heart that we decided to cancel our annual fall fundraiser due to COVID-19.
The outdoors has brought solace to many during the COVID-19 pandemic, whether it be a hike through the forest or a much-needed respite sitting along the river. It is crucial that we continue our work to preserve the Gunpowder’s natural beauty for future generations. That is why we are excited to offer you this opportunity to sponsor our 2020 activities, including
