The Governor of Maryland recently celebrated green schools at the Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education’s Green School Youth Summit, held in Sandy Point State Park.

This event gave us the opportunity to congratulate 58 new Maryland Green Schools, 73 schools that have been re-certified to maintain their green status, and the 3 schools that have achieved the Sustained Green School Award. Since 1999, 468 Maryland schools have received the Maryland Green Flag, making our State a leader in sustainability by incorporating green practices into the classroom and tackling environmental projects in their communities and neighborhoods.

Many counties’ public schools are on the list of Maryland Green Schools.

For more information, see the Governor’s blog.
