Green Team Urbana

Let's get our hands dirty.


What is Green Team Urbana?

Our focus area and mission

Urbana, Maryland, is a diverse, densely populated, growing community of almost 3,000 households, 12,000 residents and 4,200 acres of land. One small piece of a national project to restore our ecosystem, Green Team Urbana collaborates with community leaders and empowers residents to conserve the environmental well-being of our own community and to secure a habitable future for all.


Ways We Help


Education and events

We provide and promote educational and volunteer opportunities and events open to all Urbana area residents.

Policy and advocacy

We work with developers, businesses, HOAs and local government to balance development and traditional landscaping ideals with environmental stewardship.

“Our privately owned land and the ecosystems upon it are essential to everyone’s well-being, not just our own. Abusing land anywhere has negative ramifications for people everywhere.”
