Stony Run Stewards

Stony Run Stream stretches 3.3 miles south and winds through 15 Baltimore neighborhoods before it joins the Jones Falls.  The Evergreen Campus is part of the 40 square mile urban and suburban land that drains water into the Jones Falls Watershed, and ultimately into the Chesapeake Bay.  

One half mile of Stony Run Stream travels along the outer edge of the Evergreen Campus. With this critical water source so close to home, we must take extra care to reduce litter and chemical application on our grounds. Even when we are extra careful, waste items destined for the landfill or recycling are carried by wind and water into our precious water way. 

Loyola Sustainability invites you to be a Stony Run Steward by volunteering to help clean up our stream!
