Reflections on Years Preserving the Bush and Gunpower Rivers

June 13, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

  • Why is the Bush River so important to the Baltimore Metro Area?
  • What is the History of the River and how is it faring now?
  • What are the threats to the River and where are they located?
  • Why does it need a full-time accredited Riverkeeper to protect and advocate for it?
  • What is a Riverkeeper?

In partnership with the Otter Point Creek Alliance, the Historical Society invites you to join us on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, at 6 pm at the Anita Leight Estuary Center, 700 Otter Point Rd, Abingdon, MD 21009 to learn the answers to these questions and more. Enjoy an evening featuring Theaux Le Gardeur, the Gunpowder Riverkeeper. He is the voice of the Gunpowder and Bush Rivers and works to uphold the Clean Water Act regulations related to potential river pollution impacts. These rivers are incredibly important to the quality of life in Harford County and have been vital elements in its development.  This will be a unique opportunity to delve into their history and their future.
