Community Engagement

Clean air and water, abundant fish and wildlife, and healthy communities are only possible when every resident, employee, business, and government agency actively participates in environmental conservation. With its green government initiatives, Montgomery County seeks to lead by example while also finding inspiration from our greenest residents and businesses.

Employee Engagement

Montgomery County government employees, nearly 10,000 strong, can have an enormous impact on cleaning up pollution and reducing waste through everyday actions at work. Employees engage in recycling, using less water, turning off unused lights and computer monitors, purchasing environmentally preferable goods and services, and donating food, money, and surplus office supplies to community members in need.

Public Events

From hands-on educational events at the libraries and tree plantings at parks to informational booths at the County fair, Montgomery County employees and volunteers inform and engage the public on saving energy, protecting our land and water, and seeking green transportation alternatives.


From behind-the-scenes videos to digital sign boards in public buildings, Montgomery County provides opportunities for the public to experience some of the rarely seen green features of our buildings, fleet, and operations. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter for the latest information about our green government initiatives and their impacts.
