Baltimore County Stream Watch

WANTED – A FEW GOOD VOLUNTEERS

The Patapsco Heritage Greenway is searching for volunteers for the stream watch program for the Patapsco River Valley. Adult volunteers and families are needed that live, work or “play” close to streams that flow into the Patapsco River, especially in Baltimore County. Volunteers are needed as cleaners, walkers or watchers for a short stretch of a stream.

CLEANER – volunteers remove trash from their adopted
section in and around their “section” of the stream on a
quarterly basis. Cleanups can be on an individual basis
or arranged for a group cleanup with other volunteers.

WALKER – volunteers regularly walk their “section” of
the stream and twice a year complete forms to collect
information on the health of the stream and stream bank
(visible wildlife, erosion, trash, or other environmental
concerns).

WATCHER – volunteers that are both cleaners and
walkers of their “section” of the stream and collect specific
information on any damage, pollution and/or potential
restoration opportunities observed within the stream
or stream bank.
