Maryland Green Schools

Eco-Schools USA has partnered with the Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education (MAEOE) to recognize and enhance the work that schools are doing in Maryland to 'go green'. 

The partnership links the Maryland Green Schools Program and Eco-Schools USA to encourage schools to go through both awards processes: performing environmental audits; ‘greening’ school buildings and grounds; conserving natural resources; and integrating environmental education into curricula. This new collaboration offers the support and cumulative expertise of two highly regarded organizations with a unique focus on making schools green as well as their most important export—the next generation of American conservationists.
