Celebrate Earth Month and connect with nature.  Join The Nature Conservancy and Fairfax County Park Authority to clean up your watershed!

Sites have filled up quickly, but opportunities are still available at three Fairfax County Parks. 

  • Ellanor C. Lawrence Park in Chantilly, site at capacity
  • Hidden Pond Nature Center in Springfield, site at capacity
  • Riverbend Park in Great Falls, site at capacity
  • Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria, site at capacity
  • Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, site at capacity
  • Sully Historic Site in Chantilly, site at capacity

This spring cleaning effort provides a healthy checkup for local waterways.  Help prevent tires, plastic bottles, cans and other trash and debris from reaching the nation’s largest estuary, the Chesapeake Bay.  And by recording the types of items you remove, you’ll be helping scientists and ecologists in their efforts to improve our environment.

Snacks, give-a-ways and other free, fun activities like historic house tours and educational opportunities will take place at the work sites. This project is ideal for families, service groups, Scouts and individuals.

Register for the event online here or email Jen Dalke, volunteer program manager, at, 434-951-0572 (work), 540-335-1302 (cell, text available).
