Earth Day is celebrated nationally on April 22, but Montgomery County celebrates the full month of April. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) offers programs throughout the month to celebrate our natural resources, stimulate environmental awareness and promote sustainable environmental initiatives.
DEP provides numerous volunteer opportunities such as workshops, stream clean-ups, and demonstrations. Earth Month closes with a grand finale celebration GreenFest scheduled for April 30 at the Takoma Park Recreation Center (calendar info). The event will include music, films, speakers, exhibitors and workshops all focused on building community and improving our environment.
