Organization Profile

Gunpowder Valley Conservancy, Inc.

The Gunpowder Valley Conservancy (GVC) is a nonprofit local environmental organization chartered in the State of Maryland in 1989. The GVC is both a land trust and watershed restoration organization.

The mission of the Gunpowder Valley Conservancy is to educate and mobilize people and resources to preserve and restore the lands and waterways of the Gunpowder watershed, which drains some 500 square miles from its starting point in lower York County, Pennsylvania, through Carroll, Baltimore and Harford counties, Maryland, before reaching the shores of the Chesapeake Bay.

Each year approximately 2,000 volunteers donate their time to improve our environment for future generations.
