With its unique waterfront location, Asbury Solomons has a strong commitment to stewardship of the environment. The Go Green Committee, composed of residents, leads efforts to promote this stewardship through awareness and action.
The Go Green Committee gets credit for expanding the community’s recycling efforts. Members now are devoting energy to oyster gardening, with a goal of improving water quality in the Patuxent River and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay. In the past five years, residents have added more than 1 million oysters to the breakwaters off Asbury Solomons' dock. Earth Day is a monthly series of events and lectures at Asbury Solomons. Our annual celebration opens the community to students and other groups to highlight and promote the importance of environmental stewardship.
