This day-long program, hosted by Hood College’s Center for Coastal and Watershed Studies and the Friends of Baker Park, is dedicated to learning how to take green actions right at home or in your neighborhood. It is an opportunity for Frederick County homeowners, residents, business owners, and students to come together and learn about ways to improve our local environment, reduce storm water runoff, reduce our carbon footprint, and more. There will be workshops on many different topics, such as energy management, recycling, rain barrels and their construction, green roofs, native tree canopies, and backyard rain gardens.

The 2016 Green Neighbor Forum will take place on Saturday, March 12, 2016 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm (with doors opening at 8:30 am) at Hood College’s Whitaker Campus Center. The $25 registration fee includes coffee breaks, lunch, and attendance to morning lectures and afternoon workshops. Space is limited, thus pre-registration is strongly encouraged by March 3rd.
