Harford to Launch Innovative Outdoors Outreach Program

Harford to launch the “Picture Yourself in Harford Streams Summer Adventure,” raising awareness for the county’s natural resources. 

Free T-shirt for Harford Streams Summer Adventure participants who visit seven stream locations.

This summer, explore the natural beauty of Harford County streams, take selfies at your favorite locations, and win prizes in Harford Streams Summer Adventure. This award-winning program from the Harford County Department of Public Works’ Office of Watershed Protection and Restoration raises awareness and support for protecting natural resources by encouraging visitors to scenic local waterways.

According to the press release:

“Harford County is blessed with beautiful waterways, and we need to protect them for future generations,” County Executive Barry Glassman said. “Please help us raise awareness by visiting these natural treasures in our own backyard.”

County residents and non-residents of all ages are welcome to join in the program, which will open Friday, May 27 and run through September 5, 2022.

Participation is easy. Simply register and choose places to visit from the list of Harford stream locations, with the option of substituting up to five locations of your own. Use Harford Streams’ online app to send in selfies from seven different locations to earn a free Harford Streams Summer Adventure T-shirt. Participating furry friends will receive a dog bandanna.

Visit 11 locations for a chance to win a family membership for the Baltimore Aquarium; visit 15 spots for a chance at a kayak trip on Otter Point Creek at Anita C. Leight Estuary Center.

Remember to share your adventures on social media using the hashtag #HarfordStreams and follow the fun on Facebook at Harford Streams, and on Twitter @HarfordCountyMD.
