What a beautiful day we had for our Green Leader Brigade "Tree Diversity" skill-building session on October 7th! Thank you to Jenny Willoughby, Sustainability Manager for the City of Frederick and to their Chesapeake Conservation Corps volunteer, Yash, for taking our group on a very informative walk through Waterford Park in Frederick. Participants learned about tree canopy, diversity and choosing the right tree for the right place. Thank you to everyone who participated! If you would like more information about the Green Leader Brigade and our upcoming events, please email Sustainability@FrederickCountyMD.gov.
We will recognize certified households at our 7th annual Green Homes Challenge Recognition Event on March 29, 2018.

You will get one entry for each challenge you are certified in!
