We'll give you a chance to check out the npGREENWAY, a proposed trail network to link the St. John's Bridge area to downtown along the waterfront.

You'll get an exclusive tour of New Columbia, mixed-income housing that incorporated community and green building practices at every stage of development.

And you can rest, relax or dig in at Whitaker Ponds where the formerly-polluted Columbia Slough has been transformed into a vibrant wildlife habitat.

We look forward to seeing you out there!
