The Gunpowder Valley Conservancy (GVC) is a Baltimore County-based land trust and watershed restoration non-profit that mobilizes people and resources to care for the lands, waters and character of the Gunpowder Watershed.
GVC offers multiple opportunities for volunteers, students, homeowners, and other interested parties to beautify their communities and help keep their local watersheds clean. Our work is of immeasurable benefit to the Chesapeake Bay and future generations growing up in smaller watersheds further inland.
Tree plantings and stream cleanups in the spring and fall make up a major part of our activities. We also offer unique chances to homeowners, enabling them to use monies put aside for them as grants to assist with environmentally-friendly garden landscaping and stormwater control in their own neighborhoods. Every hand is needed - contact us for further information on tree plantings, stream cleanups, BayWise certification, Rain Gardens, Edible Bayscapes, or Rain Barrels in your community today!
