Memorial Episcopal Church is located in Baltimore's Jones Falls Watershed. Memorial Episcopal was one of the original One Water Partnership congregations in the Baltimore Region and signed IPC's Partner Congregation pledge in 2016. In partnership with Mount Royal Elementary/Middle School, Ladew Topiary Gardens, Mahan Rykiel Landscape Architecture, MICA and others, Memorial’s Creation Care ministry conceived of and engaged in the design, funding and construction of a 2,150 sq. ft. pollinator micro-habitat and outdoor classroom teaching space on-campus for the students. The Garden is also used by the community for learning about native plants, and relaxation. They have also hosted several movie nights, including co-hosting a series of panel discussions with two other nearby churches: Corpus Christi Catholic Church and Brown Memorial Park Avenue Presbyterian Church. The turnout of over 100 people demonstrates the tremendous reach congregations have when they work together. Church members, assisted by nearly 25 students from the neighborhood three elementary or elementary/middle schools, reconditioned 10 expanded sidewalk tree pits around the church, introducing worms and amended soil for healthier long-lived trees in place of 1.6 tons of concrete sidewalk. They also held an electronics recycling event and attended IPC's Faithful Green Leaders Training program in 2020 to strengthen their team.
