“Blue Water Baltimore”

Blue Water Baltimore is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to restore the quality of Baltimore’s rivers, streams and Harbor to foster a healthy environment, a strong economy, and thriving communities. They work toward a future when our streams, rivers and Harbor are healthy, thriving ecosystems that are accessible and safe for citizens, visitors and commerce. To achieve these goals, they monitor the Baltimore area waterways for pollution. They organize trash cleanups, plant trees on public land, and provide green infrastructure to reduce storm water runoff. They advocate for stronger laws for clean water, both locally and statewide.
Join us for a fascinating overview of the health of our local waterways and the important work of Blue Water Baltimore including their community forestry program.
