Create a beautiful garden, preserve local waterways and protect the Bay.
Bayscape gardens replace lawn with beautiful native plants that support wildlife, reduce maintenance, and filter rain water from hard surfaces before it runs into local waterways. We need YOUR help to create a Bayscape garden at the Baltimore County Game and Fish Protective Association in Parkville.
No gardening experience necessary! Perfect for Scout troops and their families. Community service hours available. Learn how to incorporate native plants in your own backyard!
What to expect: Dress for yard work (hat, long pants, sneakers/boots, sunscreen) and bring your own water bottle. Bring garden gloves if you have them. Lunch provided after garden installation.
Directions: The Baltimore County Game and Fish Protective Association is located at 3400 Northwind Road, Parkville, MD 21234. Once on Northwind Road, look for Game and Fish signs and turn onto their driveway into forested area. Continue down driveway until you reach a large building.
