Plant trees for cleaner air and water in Baltimore County!
More than 31,000 trees have been planted throughout the Gunpowder Watershed by enthusiastic volunteers over the past 30 years, and we need YOUR help to plant even more! We are looking for student volunteers and adults who care about the Earth, our watershed, and the Chesapeake Bay! Do you like being outside in nature and don’t mind working hard? Join us, and make a difference for future generations.
A maximum of 25 people, including GVC staff and volunteer leaders, will be allowed to participate in this event. We are allowing minors (ages 10 – 17) to attend our events as long as there is one parent/legal guardian per two children in attendance.
Date: Saturday, November 7, 2020 (10 am – 1 pm). This event is rain or shine.
Location: Volunteers should park in the parking lot at Franklinville Presbyterian Church (11846 Franklinville Road, Kingsville, MD 21087). Look for GVC Tree Planting signs nearby to direct you to the work site at 11909 Woodberry Place, Kingsville, MD 21087.
What to bring: Remember to wear boots, pants, long sleeve shirt, hat, gloves, and bring rain gear. Each volunteer will need to bring their own labeled water bottle.
