This event is planned by a committee of Project Green Classrooms, a initiative created by Governor Larry Hogan’s executive order, renewing Maryland’s commitment to environmental education to ensure that every child in Maryland has the opportunity to learn about their local environment, develop a connection with nature, and have a better sense of place in their natural surroundings. The initiative will promote outdoor experiential activities and environmental education through Maryland’s schools, communities and public lands.  Find more information, here:
