Plant trees for cleaner air and water in Baltimore County! 

More than 32,000 trees have been planted throughout the Gunpowder Watershed by enthusiastic volunteers over the past 33 years, and we need YOUR help to plant even more! Do you like being outside in nature and don’t mind working hard?  Join us, and make a difference for future generations by planting trees at a private residence in Sparks, MD.
