About Green Bowie


Green Bowie is the umbrella term used to describe all of the City's environmental initiatives. While Green Bowie will continue to adapt and change, one thing is increasingly apparent - Green Bowie's continued success will depend heavily on community involvement. 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.
