Adopt a Stream training – Full
March 5 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
The Gunpowder Valley Conservancy is looking for volunteers, age 18+, to join our Adopt-a-Stream Program. It’s easy to participate:
- Attend this training to become a Stream Captain.
- Agree to clean your adopted stream segment twice a year.
- Send us your trash data.
- Watch for and report stream hazards.
- It’s that simple!
Adopt-A-Stream is great for individuals, families, neighborhoods, Scout groups, schools, or community groups. In the workshop, you will learn about the threats to the health of the Gunpowder watershed and how to help to protect and improve our local creeks and rivers. Topics will include how to safely remove trash from the waterways, how to properly identify problems such as sewer breaks and illicit discharges, and who to contact to report such problems.
Registration is now closed for this training. If you’re interested in attending our next Adopt-a-Stream training, contact Darcy Herman to be added to the wait list. Thanks for making a difference in the health of our local waterways!
