The name Green Bowie has been around since 2007. However, its meaning and encompassing goals are always evolving as we strive to do better for our residents. Green Bowie was initially used to describe conservation and pollution prevention activities in the Environmental Infrastructure Strategy Plan (EI Plan). These days, though, Green Bowie is the umbrella term used to describe all of the City's environmental initiatives.
About Green Bowie
While Green Bowie will continue to adapt and change, one thing is becoming increasingly apparent - Green Bowie's continued success will depend heavily on community involvement. Teachers, businesses owners, and residents can all be involved in one way or another. Whether it is installing a rain barrel on your property, volunteering with the Green Team, or achieving a green certification, these are all actions that will define the future of Green Bowie.
