The GreenGive is a local, environmentally-focused, 24-hour online initiative designed to both raise funds and expand residents’ and businesses’ engagement with local environmental organizations, issues, projects and actions.
On July 21-22, 2020, we invite the Annapolis and Anne Arundel County community to join with us to support clean water in our own communities. Through an interactive online platform, individuals and businesses will be invited to invest in clean water by donating to any of the GreenGive partners:
Pick More Than One! All ten GreenGive partners are part of a force for the Greener Good in Anne Arundel County.
Funds raised through the GreenGive will be used by the ten GreenGive partners to invest in actions that have a tangible impact on our own local waterways and quality of life. Every dollar raised will be turned into projects and programs that really do make a difference right here in Anne Arundel County. In a time when federal support and leadership is uncertain at best, we know that the fate of our local environment is in our own hands.
We all love our Chesapeake Bay and consider it a national treasure. GreenGive organizations intend to make sure that the waterways that feed into the Bay are clean and ready for fishing, crabbing, swimming and boating. There is no better legacy we can leave the next generation.

An Almost-First-Day Hike
Kick off the new year and walk off those holiday treats with a hike at the beautiful Bacon Ridge Natural Area in Crownsville. Arundel Rivers Federation and Scenic Rivers Land Trust are partnering to take you on a guided hike of this 1000+ acre protected, public asset at the heart of our county. Staff from each organization will be on hand to point out important ecological features of the area.
The hike is open to all ages and skill levels, though please note that these are unpaved trails and the terrain can be hilly. The hike will be approximately 1-2 miles. See Location here. Learn more about the trail here.
We will meet at the gravel parking lot on Hawkins Road at 9:50 am. Since parking is limited, please RSVP.
Chesapeake songster Janie Meneely and internationally touring musician Rob van Sante will appear with the West & Rhode Riverkeeper Jeff Holland and That West River Band in a musical celebration of the Chesapeake Bay to benefit the Arundel Rivers Federation. Tickets: $20; cash bar.
