Hampden’s Academy for College and Career Exploration (ACCE) high school students mapped sustainable assets for their own “green map.” Who knew Hampden had a Skatepark?

Since 2007, Janet Felsten, Baltimore Green Map’s Director, has created an insightful printed and online “eco-map” highlighting Baltimore’s hidden and sustainable gems ranging from shopping, hiking, eating and learning, to cultural activities.  Part of the worldwide Open Green Map system, Baltimore Green Map is teaming with local schools and student teams to “green map” their own school community.

“We wanted to help people discover the breadth of Baltimore’s natural and and positive assets. From lead poisoning, heroin cases, and vacant properties, I thought Baltimore had plenty of negative maps. Baltimore Green Map’s goal is for our community and visitors to discover, enjoy and support Baltimore’s sustainable assets.”
