Maryland Committee for the East Coast Greenway
The Maryland Committee for the ECG is made up of volunteers who are very active in advocating for Maryland’s trails, greenways, and bike/ped issues. These volunteers coordinate our route selection and undertake advocacy efforts to move the Greenway ahead in Maryland. By building support and partnerships with citizens, public agencies and organizations at the local and state levels, the Maryland Committee is helping to get the ECG on the ground, mile by mile. Mayor Ellen Moyer of Annapolis proclaims “East Coast Greenway Day.”
