What Can YOU Do for Arundel Rivers?

Ultimately, the Federation is effective because hundreds of people who live, work and play on South, West & Rhode Rivers are willing to invest themselves in healthy future of our rivers.

If you would like to become an active member of Arundel Rivers Federation, please email Nancy Merrill , our Volunteer Program Coordinator. We’ll find a way to get you plugged into helping bring back the river.

Spring 2020 Events

Project Clean Stream:

On Sunday, March 25th @ 1pm, help us clean up a stream that runs through our Bywater Steam Restoration Project in Annapolis, MD. Spend a couple hours and help us pick up trash and debris. Email Nancy@arundelrivers.org to RSVP and for detailed directions.

Become a Stream Wader!

We need your help searching for stream critters! Knowing what lives in our streams can tell us a lot about their health. Come join us in netting these critters (waders provided).  We want to sample 5-6 streams. Because the outings are weather dependent (taking around 3 hours each), dates are determined on a weekly basis. If you are willing to be on the Stream Wader Team and be notified of upcoming outings,  please email Sarah Giordano at sarahg@arundelrivers.org.
