      The annual Gunpowder Falls State Park cleanup, coordinated by the Gunpowder Valley Conservancy, was held on April 19, 1997. As a result of the efforts of 400 volunteers, nine tons of trash were removed from streams, shorelines, and trails. Also, more than 1100 trees were planted, some along shorelines to act as riparian buffers. The Greater Baltimore Canoe Club, committed to working on improvement of rivers and streams, is a regular volunteer for this event. Shown here, members are collecting trash and debris from the Big Gunpowder Falls below Route 40. They used ingenious methods to convey the "cargo" to Days Cove where it was hauled to a local recycler or land fill.
