Conservation Montgomery
Last updated on August 23, 2016


Our mission is to sustain Montgomery County's quality of life and natural resources for current and future generations though community awareness and sound decision-making.

Our vision is a connection between the health of our natural landscape and our collective quality of life. Conservation Montgomery envisions an environmentally literate citizenry and elected officials who act to protect natural resources in our communities.

Conservation Montgomery is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are a coalition of civic and environmental organizations as well as individual residents who address a broad spectrum of environmental and quality of life challenges facing Montgomery County over the next decade as the county approaches a population of one million. Conservation Montgomery serves as a forum and educational tool for county residents who want to work toward having effective watershed protection and storm water management; tree-lined streets -- and a tree and forest canopy that will provide environmental, economic and aesthetic benefits; workable solutions dealing with the impacts of climate change; energy-efficient homes, offices and businesses; sustainable transportation; pedestrian and bike-friendly neighborhoods; green public space and lush parks; and responsive governance with land use decisions based on input all community stakeholders.

Conservation Montgomery manages a website, a community calendar, and an archive of resources. We conduct "Community Strolls" in county parks and neighborhoods and assist in tree planting and tree protection projects around the county. As necessary, we testify at Council, State or Maryland-National Capital Planning Commission hearings. The organization offers tools for residents and policy makers and brokers partnerships to work toward positive outcomes for our communities. Conservation Montgomery is funded by members, member organizations and grants.
