Sustainability Events

The listing for event calendars below, other than the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) event calendar, are from organizations outside of DNR. If an event of interest is located contact the host organization directly for questions.

Most events feature hands-on activities to teach children and adults the importance of environmental stewardship. If the event is only a few hours be sure to check out their website if it will be held at a park. Many of the parks offer activities such as boat rentals (kayaks, canoes and paddle boats), bike rentals or hiking.

For those that leave the event or day at the park wanting more, DNR’s Park Quest program will be sure to satisfy everyone. Park Quest is a program people sign up for and try to complete a number of activities throughout the summer. There is a specific activity for each park such as crabbing, hiking, fishing, and more. The activities are entered into a journal format and the participants are entered into a drawing held at the end of the summer. Visit the site, pick your team and get ready to explore.

Sustainability Tip

Install a rain garden or rain barrel to catch rainwater. Stormwater rushing off of roofs and lawns carries pollution directly into streams and the Bay. Rain gardens and rain barrels slow the water down and keep pollution out of our waters. Click here for other helpful information.
