Greater Baden Aquasco Citizens Association (GBACA) was founded in 2000 to protect the rural tier in the southeast corner of Prince George’s County. GBACA offers its residents a forum to voice their concerns they feel will ultimately affect the community.
GBACA biggest success is our nine year quest to prevent a rubble dump from being placed next to the Prince George’s County public school system’s only environmental center. Finally, thanks to the financial and social support of the citizens of Baden and Aquasco victory is ours.
Please support our efforts by attending our meetings during the odd-numbered months (January, March, May, July, September and November) on the third Wednesday at 7:30 pm at the Baden Volunteer Fire Station (map). The annual cost of the membership is only $10 per family.
Volunteers are needed to serve as members of the board of directions. Your help is also needed to generate fundraising events. We are a member-driven organization!
