About the Program
Frederick County's Office of Sustainability and Environmental Resources (OSER)'s expanded Neighborhood Green Program helps landowners in the Peter Pan Run and brook trout watersheds control storm water runoff and reduce pollutants from entering our local waterways feeding into the Chesapeake Bay by implementing best management practices like rain barrels, rain gardens, conservation landscaping and tree plantings. Polluted storm water affects the water that we use for drinking, swimming and fishing, and contributes to stream erosion. Implementing these actions will also attract birds and pollinators while beautifying your property and they will have a beneficial and lasting impact on our stream and watershed health.
Eligible landowners for this program must reside in Frederick County's Upper Monocacy trout watersheds (see map) or in the Peter Pan Run watershed (see map). Our limited grant funding excludes us from expanding the program countywide at this time, but we hope to do so in the future. However, all interested landowners in Frederick County are encouraged to submit an interest form at this time. Our educational workshops are always open to the public and often there are other resources we can provide for those outside of our priority areas.
