Spring 2019 GreenScape – event is Saturday, April 27. Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley and the City of Annapolis invite you to help make Maryland’s capital city a beautiful place during 2019. This year’s GreenScape will take place on Saturday, April 27. The second organizational meeting will be held Wednesday, March 6 at 6 pm at the “Pip” Moyer Recreation Center located at 273 Hilltop Lane in Annapolis. Order forms are due at this meeting. To learn more, please contact Marisa Wittlinger.
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.
Thank you to all of the volunteers that joined us Saturday, October 27, 2018 and participated in “Make a Difference Day” by volunteering for the City’s fall GreenScape project. New in 2018, the City now participates 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!
Shiley Park Dedication
Shiley Park was the most recent park to be dedicated in the City of Annapolis. During spring 2016 GreenScape (Saturday, April 23rd), a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held. More than 50 people joined City representatives as the community welcomed the first street-end park to become established in 10 years. The event included local individuals recognizing Shiley Park (near Giddings Avenue) in West Annapolis: Alderman Fred Paone of Ward Two presented the proclamation, former Mayor Ellen Moyer thanked the community for 25 years of GreenScape dedication and volunteer Steve Raabe talked about Shiley Park and the local volunteers.
