Environmental Community Service / Blue Water Baltimore
« Last post by stargirlDR on March 29, 2019, 08:59:24 AM »
I was looking for ways for my students to volunteer with the community, and this came up as an option.  Most of the opportunities are not during the school day, so it doesn't work well for the program, but I thought it sounded like something the grove would enjoy.  Blue Water Baltimore helps to plant trees, clean up streams and and forests and protect the waterways all over Baltimore :).  They ask people to register for any volunteer work and say they provide tools and training.

Here is there calendar of events

https://www.bluewaterbaltimore.org/events/

A few I saw coming up are
Saturday April 6  9:00am - Watershed clean up in the Gwynn Oaks Community   -  2720 Gwynnmore Avenue, Gwynn Oak, MD 21207

Wednesday April 3rd 5:30 (training) and Saturday April 6th 11:00am - 3pm (event) - Tree Giveaway station (free native trees and some instructions on growing for native trees for residents of Baltimore City and County only

Station North Tool Library, 417 E Oliver St, Baltimore, MD 21202

Saturday April 13 9:00am  - Tree Planting
Sinclair Lane Elementary School, 3880 Sinclair Lane, Baltimore, MD 21213

Saturday April 13 10 - 5 - Polliner Planting

The site seems to have some form of environmental volunteer opportunity almost every weekend :), and a few midweek in the evenings

Pre-registration is required for this event. Volunteer space is limited and registration will close when the event is full. Participants must be at least 5 years old. All volunteers under 18 must be supervised by an adult.

Sorry I wasn't at the Grove last Sunday. I did go to the cemetery cleanup on Saturday though. It only took an hour with the other volunteers from the community. A good experience and everyone was friendly and well organized! I'd definitely do it again, schedule permitting.
