History of Green Bowie
The name Green Bowie has been around since 2007.  However, its meaning and encompassing goals have been evolving ever since.  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 including those in the EI Plan and all of those that have followed in its footsteps.

Green Bowie will continue to adapt and change. However, 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. 

Committees on Environmental Issues
The Green Team and the Environmental Advisory Committee advise the City Council on environmental matters. The Green Team's focus is environmental education and outreach, while the Environmental Advisory Committee's focus is environmental policy.

You can show your support by attending one of their meetings or learning more about what they do. For more information, visit their official committee pages by clicking on the links below:
