Princeton's Online Green Map Goes Live!

Do you want to visit Princeton's hidden parks and paths?  Find a great picnic site?  See the 250-year old Stamp Act trees?  Learn about a green roof project on Princeton campus?  Then check out Sustainable Princeton's online, interactive Green Map on our resource page!

We have 60 sites mapped so far on the "Princeton Green Connections" Green Map, including our parks and other "green" places, eco-information sites, special trees, biking routes, hiking trails, and more.

Where is your favorite green place in Princeton?  And why is it special?  We  invite everyone to help add more sites, comments, photos, etc. to the map. Just click on the map icons and routes, and you will see options for adding comments/photos, and even rating the site's impacts!

We would like to start other Green Map themes in the future, focusing on green building technology, green/sustainable businesses, green events/tours, etc. Please contact Andrea Malcolm if you are interested in helping us expand the "Princeton Green Connections" Green Map and/or coordinating a new green map for our community.
