Last month, the town was recognized by both the State of Maryland and by a prestigious national competition for our commitment to tree protection, preservation and planting. Riverdale Park received MD Department of Natural Resources' PLANT award and was granted the National Arbor Day Foundation's TREE CITY USA award in recognition of the community's ongoing stewardship of its natural environment. Councilmember Rebecca Feldberg commented, "These awards are a wonderful recognition of our citizens' volunteer efforts and the dedication of our public works staff." Public Works has trees available for residents to plant in front yards. Call 301-864-1803.
