The Community Outreach Promoting Empowerment Section (COPE) works to engage communities and individuals in restoration, promoting sustainable solutions and leveraging community action:
COPE empowers citizen participation to effect behavior change and enable active stewardship in everyday actions at work and at home.
As part of DoE’s Sustainable Initiatives Division, COPE helps carry out the mission to improve environmental quality, revitalize communities and together build a green and sustainable future for Prince George’s County.
COPE’s focus areas include trees, water, and trash. Check the website often for notices of workshops and volunteer events. We also provide speakers for community meetings and interactive exhibits at events on a first come first serve basis, free of charge. To schedule a program, email Deborah Weller, or call 301-883-7161.
