Despite the wind and cold weather, March 28, 2015 will be remembered as the successful launch of an annual tradition in the County.  The Montgomery County GreenFest was attended by more than 700 people (estimates of ~700-1000) who came together to share ideas, learn something new and inspire the next generation to take actions for the environment.

Some of the highlights of the day included:

  • County Executive Ike Leggett kicking off the day’s activities
  • More than 150 people viewing the Racing to Zero film
  • 80 volunteers from Montgomery College and DEP’s Stream Stewards who donated 275 hours to assist in the event’s success
  • Educational sessions on home energy, green living, food and life as an EV owner
  • More than 75 kids taking part in an educational activity on lowering consumption
  • Almost 80 exhibitors including nonprofit and for-profit organizations as well as government agencies
