We Love Our Volunteers! Spotlight: Kathryn George

Clean Water, Strong Communities!

It takes a community of people to grow a community of trees. As another wonderful tree planting season draws to a close, Blue Water Baltimore celebrates the strong communities that work hard to clean our waterways. Check out the following spotlights to learn about some of our most dedicated partners and volunteers.

Kathryn George

Kathryn spent 15 hours planting, pruning and watering young trees in 2021. We appreciate her spending some of her first year of retirement caring for Baltimore’s next generation of trees with us!

Learn more about what it’s like to volunteer with Blue Water Baltimore through our Q & A with Kathryn below.

1. What do you enjoy most about volunteering with Blue Water Baltimore?

I like seeing the physical results of volunteering: trees!

2. Do you have a favorite memory of a BWB event?

My favorite memory is: people thanking us 

3. What is your favorite type of tree?

I like the ginkgo tree!

4. What do you do when you’re not planting trees with us?

When I’m not volunteering, I’m traveling, working in my own yard, or visiting kids and grandkids. I would volunteer more, except that I am frequently out of town enjoying my first (going on second) year of retirement. 

5. What motivates you to keep coming back?

I keep coming back because I feel like I’m helping an organization do its good work.

If you’re considering getting involved in volunteering, the TreeKeepers city stewardship program (via TreeBaltimore) is a great way to start learning more about trees and ways to stay engaged.


This blog will be updated weekly with additional volunteer spotlights!
