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.
