Monocacy's Green Initiative

Monocacy National Battlefield is working hard to reduce the impact of park operations on the environment. Some of our "green" initiatives include:

  • Installing energy-efficient bulbs in our visitor center and offices, using motion-triggered lighting, and installing set-back thermostats.


  • Performing energy audits on our buildings to ensure peak performance by installing insulation and energy-conserving windows and doors.


  • Recycling paper, cardboard, plastic, and glass.


  • Replacing older fleet vehicles with hybrids and other more energy-efficient models.
