I’m inspired by how receptive our young people are at creating an environmentally friendly school community. When I see them working together, I realize that they are going to be the agent for change.

Mobilize Frederick Education Group

Environmental education is key as we develop solutions for our growing county and changing climate.

 

To implement Recommendation 37 from the Climate Response and Resilience Report, our Education Group mobilizes resources to build climate-resilient school communities and to certify all Frederick County Public Schools as Maryland Green Schools.

 

We collaborate with Frederick County Public Schools, private schools, local government, parks, non-profits, businesses, and residents to support and increase the number of Maryland Green Schools and to expand environmental literacy county-wide.

 

Discover the efforts underway at schools, the positive impacts of outdoor learning and hands-on action, and how you can engage students. Or, use the tools created for schools to empower your community to become more sustainable, healthier, economically sound, and better prepared for the future a changing climate.

Funds for Growing Green and this website have been provided by the Delaplaine Foundation and the Frederick County Community Partnerships Grant program.
