In honor of Earth Month, the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and One Montgomery Green (OMG) have teamed up to present “Eco Evenings with DEP and OMG”. 

This new series will discuss relevant environmental topics that are important to local residents. The first discussion will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 28 with Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich. In the future, each series will be held the last Wednesday of each month. 

The opening discussion will cover topics on the County’s climate action plan, a countywide anti-littering campaign and details about plogging, eco-friendly exercises. The Eco Evening series will be hosted by Adam Ortiz, director of DEP, and Wendy Howard, executive director of OMG. Every month, they will answer questions and engage with special guests.
