Help Grow More Gardens in 2022
The Gunpowder Valley Conservancy is seeking your interest in the Gunpowder watershed for rain gardens project. You may request to be added to the wait list for 2022.
GVC has designed conservation gardens since 2009 as part of watershed restoration projects. Rain gardens feature beautiful native plants that can improve water drainage issues, filter pollutants from stormwater runoff, and provide important pollinator habitat.
Through the years, the demand for our Clear Creeks Project rain gardens has grown so much that we now maintain a wait list for homeowners, businesses, and organizations interested in receiving a free rain garden assessment. An average-sized Clear Creeks Project rain garden only costs between $450 – $500 thanks to our 80% cost-share program.
We are in the process of submitting grant applications for another two years of funding (2022-2023) for the Clear Creeks Project. It is important for us to gauge how much interest there is within the Gunpowder watershed for rain gardens.
Fill out our pre-assessment form: http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp… to be added to our 2022 Wait List for a Clear Creeks Project rain garden assessment. Our staff will confirm that your address is within our project area. We will then notify you when the 2022 funding is secure and inform you of the next steps. Together, we can stem the tide of pollution one garden at a time.
Help Plant Trees in 2022
The Gunpowder Valley Conservancy is seeking property owners who have suitable property for free tree planting. Details follow and visit the GVC website, https://gunpowdervalleyconservancy.org/ to be up to date on all their excellent programs: Gunpowder Valley Conservancy. GVC, its members and volunteers improve life for all in Baltimore County. I am grateful and fully support their efforts.
Since 1989, GVC has planted over 32,000 native trees throughout the Gunpowder watershed. But that’s not enough. We are dedicated to tripling the number of native trees planted by 2023 to combat climate change.
GVC is seeking property owners to help plant the future at NO COST! All native tree plantings are 100% covered by our grant funding from Maryland Department of Natural Resources.
