Welcome Week: Eco-Service in Baltimore

August 10, 2016 2:43 PM
Welcome new students through giving back in the community! Have fun, connect with new people, and with organizations making a difference in Baltimore, Sat, Aug 29 with UMBC Student Life:

PARKS AND PEOPLE'll spend the day with the Parks and People Foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting and implementing a wide range of recreational and educational opportunities, creating and sustaining beautiful lively parks, and promoting a healthy natural environment for Baltimore. 

Volunteers will be weeding, planting trees, and mulching around several curb bump-outs to create a nice green space. The bump-outs are designed to increase pedestrian safety by making it easier to cross a multi-lane road, create new mini green spaces between the sidewalk and road, and reduce impervious surface for rainwater.

The Baltimore Community ToolBank offers an inventory of tools - shovels, rakes, drills, and so much more helps other non-profit organizations, religious and educational institutions, community groups, etc. increase their impact. 

You'll be helping Toolbank keep their huge warehouse organized, maintain tools, and maybe even lend a hand on one of their environmental initiatives.

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. 

Volunteers will be helping with the Canoe & Scoop Program. Volunteers will go out on canoes and kayaks for a trash clean up.
