The Gunpowder Valley Conservancy will hold a Clear Creeks Project open house this weekend.
The event will be held on Saturday, October 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Maryland State Game & Fish Protective Association, located at 8735 Honeygo Boulevard in Perry Hall.
Attendees will be able to drop in to see the beautiful ways GVC have improved water quality for recreation and local wildlife on the grounds of the country’s oldest conservation club.
Stormwater runoff – the rain that flows over roofs, parking lots, and other impervious surfaces – is the leading source of pollution into the Chesapeake Bay. Attendees will learn how to reduce pollution, beautify their yards, and solve local flooding issues.
The event will feature examples of:
— rain barrels
— a Bayscape Garden
— a rain garden
— native tree plantings
— Bay-Wise Certified landscape
— microbioretention practices
Light refreshments will be provided. A mid-day Flag Retirement Ceremony will also be conducted by a local Scout troop.
