Visit a park and learn to save energy at home! Montgomery Parks has partnered with the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the Montgomery Energy Connection (MEC) to announce the Parks Circuit of the 2020-21 MEC Scavenger Hunt. This fun, self-paced exploration leads residents around the county to discover locations that use energy-saving techniques. All of the details and rules for the Parks Circuit are listed on the MEC’s webpage. Residents are encouraged to use the Home Energy Tip that is recommended at every location. For additional information on Montgomery Parks’ stewardship efforts, please visit the Sustainability Program page.
The eleven participating parks are marked on MEC’s interactive map, and a sign with energy tips and sustainability in the parks information can be found at each location. While participating in the scavenger hunt, all Montgomery Parks’ rules and regulations regarding COVID-19 and social distancing apply. Face coverings are required in all parks where physical distancing is not possible.
