Green Bowie is the umbrella term used to describe all of the City's environmental initiatives. Everyone can be involved in one way or another. Whether it be installing a rain barrel on your property, purchasing a compost bin, volunteering with the Green Team, replacing less energy efficient light bulbs with LEDs, or driving an electric vehicle, these are all actions that will define the future of Green Bowie. Read more about the City's environmental and sustainability goals and see actions you can take as a resident in our Sustainability Plan.
