Four Rivers Heritage Area is proud to be a supporter and partner of MD Green Travel! Every year we work to make our Maryland Day Celebration event “Greener,” as well as our special events and programs.

As one of Maryland’s leading industries, meeting and event planning can result in significant environmental impacts. From the amount of waste generated, the amount of material used, transportation to and from, and the energy and water consumed during the event, it adds up. For an environmentally responsible organization, Greening events clearly communicates a commitment to minimizing the events’ environmental impacts.

And besides, we all want to do the right thing for our cherished environment!
