The Problem

Problem to Address: After two significant floods hit Ellicott City, MD, this neighborhood faced erosion along the banks that impacted the stability of the stream and the health of the watershed. Many trees in the neighborhood are being overrun by vines and this is causing loss of trees that adds to the stream bank’s instability.

Our Plan

Actions to Implement: Bash’s Branches Project aims to: 1. Empower young people in the Bonnie Branch Community to enhance their neighborhood environment; 2. Drive community through a day of action to support the project outcomes; and 3. Increase the wellbeing of the Bonnie Branch neighborhood through supporting healthy tree growth and clean water management for—and with—the neighborhood we all share.
