Mission Statement

Baltimore Green Map promotes the discovery, use, and stewardship of the Baltimore region’s natural, cultural and “green living” resources.  Our participatory mapmaking processes and education outreach activities draw out the richness and diversity of local assets, creating greater public awareness of specific places and highlighting opportunities to advance Baltimore’s progress toward building a healthy urban environment for the benefit of all.
