Montgomery County GreenFest

Members of our community attended GreenFest in Jesup Blair Park on May 5. GreenFest is the largest, annual enviromental festival in Montgomery County, MD. This community-building event gives residents, businesses, nonprofits, and neighbors a chance to enjoy exhibits, kids' activities, and workshops that are all focused on building community and improving our environment. This year's activities included: 
  • Tips on lawn care, trees, bike repair and more!
  • Tree-Climbing and Stream Maze for kids
  • Dance performances by UpRooted Dance
  • 100 exhibitors, including artisans and food trucks
  • Electric vehicle and car show 
Slow the Flow project team members attended the festivities and saw booths by two of our partners, the Friends of Sligo Creek and the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection, who sponsors the RainScapes program that we support.

Every effort helps move us closer to a healthy watershed, rivers, and Chesapeake Bay.
