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.

For citizens who care about our local waterways, the Patapsco Heritage Greenway's Stream Watch program allows us to make an impact as citizen scientists and volunteer stewards. Stream Watchers can adopt a section of a waterway, volunteering to clean debris, monitor the health of the stream, and/or collect information on any stormwater damage, pollution, or potential restoration opportunities. Craig Hinners, one of our Stream Watchers, had the Stream Watcher experience of a lifetime during the flood last July. Below is his retelling of the events that unfolded.
