Join The Alice Ferguson Foundation as we welcome elected officials, business leaders, community activists, and municipal managers for the Transforming Communities: Trash-Free Solutions for Healthy Lives, Clean Land, and Safe Water Summit on March 22, 2016 at the University of Maryland College Park’s Riggs Alumni Center. In conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the signing of the Potomac River Watershed Trash Treaty, this year’s Summit will reflect on a decade of successes as well as set the stage for specific, achievable trash reduction goals in the future.

Baker, III, Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett, and other jurisdiction leaders, as well as roundtable discussions on key topics, including Stormwater Management, Containerization, Composting, and Social Marketing.
