FREDERICK, Maryland—Hood College’s Center for Coastal and Watershed Studies (CCWS) will hold a Green Neighbor Festival May 20 and 21 from noon to 5 p.m.
The festival will be located around Baker Park’s Culler Lake at West 2nd St. and College Terrace. Held in conjunction with Celebrate Frederick’s Behind the Garden Gates Tour, this two-day outdoor festival will promote environmental sustainability and “green” practices to protect land, water and energy resources in local neighborhoods.
The event will feature an educational walking tour of the newly restored lake structures, eco-friendly vendors, family-friendly activities, a tree tour, and a fish release.
