Support a Healthy Gunpowder Watershed 

Become a champion for clean water and land preservation with a tax-deductible donation to the Gunpowder Valley Conservancy. With your support we are able to:

  • Protect more land in conservation easements
  • Improve forest habitat by planting native trees and removing invasive plants
  • Improve local waterways by coordinating stream clean-ups
  • Inform people on ways to reduce pollution by implementing Bay-Wise practices on their property (e.g. rain barrels, rain gardens)
  • Provide hands-on environmental stewardship opportunities for volunteers of all ages

GVC Friends of the Forest - New for 2021!

Since 1989, GVC has planted and maintained over 32,000 trees and is on track to triple our annual tree plantings by 2023. When you make a tax-deductible donation to GVC's Friends of the Forest, you are directly supporting our work of expanding native forest and wildlife habitat within the Gunpowder Watershed.

  • $25 will nurture one tree
  • $100 will nurture a grove
  • $250 will nurture a forest

In return, we will send you a commemorative certificate to acknowledge your support. A perfect gift to celebrate people in your life who appreciate the beauty of the Gunpowder Falls and the Chesapeake Bay and/or are environmental stewards in their own community.

Each certificate features "Jerusalem Mill" by local artist, Mary Magenta. Visit her website to view her prints showcasing nature scenes in Maryland.
