Meet new people, explore Baltimore, and lend a helping hand as a Blue Water Baltimore volunteer!

Blue Water Baltimore volunteers help out year-round. One-time and recurring volunteer opportunities are available. You can help plant and prune trees, clean up trash from our streets and streams, make storm drain art, lend a hand at our Herring Run Nursery, or help out staff at our main office

Volunteer Groups

We’d love to host your school, business, faith group, or neighborhood. Please note that we especially welcome volunteer groups during planting seasons (April-May and September-November), but are also able to accommodate groups occasionally during the summer and winter. We are currently hosting in-person stream clean-ups only with groups able to offset the cost of materials and staffing. 

Please reach out to Leanna Powell, [email protected], and include the estimated size of your group,  your preferred dates and activities, and your event sponsorship budget if available.


Blue Water Baltimore is committed to accessibility. We encourage all people to participate in our programs and activities.

If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation to fully serve as a Blue Water Baltimore volunteer, please contact us at volunteer [at] bluewaterbaltimore.org or call (410) 254-1577 x103.
