click for print view

by Janis Oppelt | 2011

The new Prince George’s County Group Executive Committee is in the process of developing a new organizational structure that has lots of room for volunteers of all types, temperaments, and time to share. If you have wanted to “do something” for your local environment, please review the committee list and tasks below. Even if you only have a little time or energy to offer, it will help us help our local environment—and the people who live in it.
