Annapolis Green connects the community by communicating an environmental message that is meaningful, positive and motivational, engaging residents, businesses, non-profits, government agencies, and visitors. Our goal is to make the Annapolis area as Green as possible – a place where sustainability is a way of life and a source of pride – by accelerating the work of the legions of dedicated environmentalists and celebrating successes – in person, on the radio, online, and in everyday life.
Our Responsible Events & Festivals program helps organizations operate their special events Go Green by providing best practices including recycling, composting and measurement, and assisting with marketing, sponsorships, and resources. From sporting events to festivals, to running races, sailing regattas and more. Learn more.

Back Creek Conservancy
A group of citizen volunteers has taken initial steps to establish a conservancy to protect Back Creek in Annapolis.
The Conservancy will conduct its work in support of the 2014 Chesapeake Watershed Agreement and its 2025 targets. Its work is science-driven, with an important role for citizen science.
The group seeks volunteers to organize a program of Best Management Practices, driven by science, to reduce pollution and bring the creek back to a fishable, swimmable state while ensuring that it continues to accommodate the needs of the community.
This is a long-term effort that will require citizen support and funding.
