GreenScape

GreenScape is a city and community partnership investment of beautification, clean-up, and planting in public spaces throughout the City of Annapolis. GreenScape was founded through the efforts of former Mayor Ellen Moyer and the Annapolis Recreation and Parks Advisory Board. Since 1991, hundreds of projects have been initiated and adopted by individuals, community groups and neighborhood associations. GreenScape takes place each spring with additional endeavors in the fall during the national Make a Difference Day, a national effort encouraging groups and individuals to volunteer in their community to improve the lives of others.

Fall 2018 GreenScapeevent is Saturday, October 27. Annapolis Recreation and Parks invites the community to participate in “Make a Difference Day” by volunteering for the City’s fall GreenScape project on Saturday, October 27. “Make a Difference Day” is a national effort encouraging groups and individuals to volunteer in their community to improve the lives of others.
New this year, we are participating in the Journey North Tulip Test Garden. You can help scientists track season and climate changes around the world. When your tulips emerge and bloom, you will announce the arrival of spring in Annapolis.
