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.
More about the Green Give.
Join the Watershed Stewards Academy’s Tree Troopers for an Invasive Species Q&A via Google Meet featuring Bud Reaves, Anne Arundel County Forester, and Craig Highfield, the Director of Forest Programs for the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay.
They will discuss invasive plant species, how they affect our forest canopy, and how to properly control them. In preparation for the conversation, review these great resources that the Anne Arundel County Weed Resistance put together for Class 12 Steward Candidates: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4
To join, please RSVP to Alyssa Brummitt: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Information and to register
Anne Arundel Watershed Stewards Academy is a great opportunity to learn how to solve environmental problems in your community and find a local network of energized leaders. WSA’s hands-on, research-based certification course gives Stewards the tools to implement change in their communities, turning knowledge into action.
Want to get off the sidelines and make a real change? Master Watershed Stewards serve Anne Arundel County communities by installing landscape projects that reduce pollution and organizing campaigns to encourage habits that make a difference. Collectively, these community-based actions reduce pollution at its source and improve the health of the entire Chesapeake Bay.
You don’t have to be an expert, WSA will show you the way!
