FREDERICK, Md.—A forum dedicated to learning how to take green actions at home or in your neighborhood is scheduled for March 12 at Hood College.
The Green Neighbor Forum is an opportunity for Frederick County homeowners, residents, business owners and students to come together and learn about ways to improve their local environments, reduce storm water runoff and reduce their carbon footprints. The event will take place in the Whitaker Campus Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
There will be workshops with topics including energy management, recycling, rain barrels and their construction, green roofs, native tree canopies and backyard rain gardens. The program is hosted by Hood College’s Center for Coastal and Watershed Studies and the Friends of Baker Park.
“The Green Neighbor Forum is a wonderful way for the community to connect with Hood College as we all collectively move towards green initiatives,” said Claire Hudson, Hood’s coastal studies coordinator.
The registration fee is $25 and includes attendance to morning lectures and afternoon workshops, coffee breaks and lunch. Space is limited, so pre-registration is strongly encouraged by March 4.
