GreenScape 2017 on May 31st was a tremendous success! Our free annual celebration of youth environmental leadership brought more than 100 students and supporters out to the Baltimore Rowing & Resource Center on the Middle Branch. Students showed off their work on this year’s Green, Healthy, Smart Challenge grant projects, went canoeing, learned about everything from pollinators to pollution, played games, won prizes, got awards, and even met Mayor Catherine Pugh (watch video of her visit here)!
THANK YOU to our youth environmental interns who helped plan the event, our major funder Constellation, and especially to all of the amazing students, teachers, parents, and volunteers who are making our schools and communities greener! You can find more info below about all the groups that came together to make this awesome day possible.
