Our grant is being used for outdoor exhibits about the natural environment and our responsibilities as stewards. We also plan to add an ADA walkway to assure safe entry from the parking lot to the building for our youngest visitors. Please ask how YOU can help us to enhance the parking lot and outdoor learning.

This morning the Downtown Annapolis Partnership received a green grant from BGE to install recycling cans on the City Dock area of Downtown Annapolis. BGE also awarded green grants to dozens of other non-profits including Historic Annapolis.
