Welcome!

The Prettyboy Watershed, home for the headwaters of the Gunpowder River, is a place loved by residents and visitors alike for its rural and scenic beauty.

The Prettyboy Watershed Alliance, a citizen-led group, was formed in 2003 to support you in these efforts. In turn we rely on the support of people like you. Please consider volunteering a few hours of your time or making a donation to help us with our work.  Learn more about PWA, it's history, goals and the five steps that you can take to improve our land and its streams.
