Preserve & Celebrate Patapsco Valley

The Patapsco Heritage Greenway’s (PHG) mission is to preserve, protect, interpret and restore the environment, history and culture of the Patapsco River Valley.

In 2015, the Patapsco Heritage Greenway celebrated the realization of a major goal when the Patapsco Valley became one of Maryland’s 13 certified Heritage Areas. This designation depended upon the unanimous approval of the Patapsco Valley Heritage Area (PVHA) Management Plan by both the Baltimore and Howard County Councils.
