**The Neighborhood Green Program in the Upper Monocacy Watershed has ended. Applications are no longer being accepted.
About the Program
Frederick County's Office of Sustainability and Environmental Resources (OSER)'s expanded Neighborhood Green program helped landowners in the Peter Pan Run Watershed, Potomac Direct Watershed and the Upper Monocacy Brook Trout watersheds (Myersville, Thurmont, northwest Frederick)control storm water runoff on their properties and reduce pollutants from entering our local waterways feeding into the Chesapeake Bay by installing best management practices such as Rain Barrels, Rain Gardens, Conservation landscaping, and Tree Plantings.
Neighborhood Green is a special initiative in Frederick County's Green Homes Challenge under the Green Leader Challenge. The Expanded Neighborhood Green program was funded by the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
