Edmonston is a Green Community!
Sustainable Maryland Certification
Edmonston was certified on October 15, 2019 for our efforts to become a more environmentally friendly community. Through our work with the Sustainable Maryland Certification Program, we hope to continue being a model green community.
For more information on how a municipality can register in the Sustainable Maryland Certification Program. This program also includes a customized green team training, and access to student resources that are available to provide consultancy services for municipal planning, contact ( 301) 405-7956 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Edmonston’s Green Team is proactively working together with our neighbors to bring the community together in sustainable efforts.
The community’s health requires a multi-faceted approach: increased accessibility for cyclists, runners, and walkers; clean air and energy; a tree canopy for each street that mirrors efforts from the green street; sustainable efforts for recycling, compost, and trash; and promotion of healthy and local food.
Anacostia Watershed Society
The Anacostia Watershed Society was founded in 1989 by a small group of concerned individuals who decided that the environmental needs of the Anacostia River and its watershed communities required serious attention. AWS is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to protect and restore the Anacostia River by bringing partners and communities together to achieve a clean and safe Anacostia River for the benefit of all living in its watershed and for future generations.
