The Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education (MAEOE) oversees the Maryland Green Schools Program, which was established in 1999 as a sustainable schools program. The program promotes responsible environmental stewardship and provides educational opportunities for grades PreK through 12.
In 2014 the Maryland State Department of Education made environmental education part of graduation requirements for all Maryland students. The Green School program supports these education requirements. Listen in as Executive Director Laura Johnson Collard talks about Green Schools and the resources available to parents from MAEOE.
