“I think it’s important for us to be able to highlight the work that is already been done. … It’s not jut about what it can be done but what we are doing it already,” said Jessica Jones, program manager for Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection.

According to a press release, the mission is to help Montgomery County residents enhance the environment and their local community. Attendees will hear from national and local environmental experts, participate in informational panels and how-to sessions, and enjoy music and outdoor entertainment.

Jones said people will also have the chance to see a collection of electric vehicles in Jesup Blair Local Park and tour an energy- efficient Ride-on bus and the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) BioBus.
