Spring2Action and lend us a hand.

Spring2Action is Alexandria's day of giving for nonprofit organizations working across our community. We encourage all Alexandria residents to participate through April 25, in support of the many great organizations serving our community.

Please consider a small contribution to the Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation as part of your Spring2Action giving. We have a participation goal of 100 donors, giving at any level.

Lend your support at:

The Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation formed in 2016 to foster the preservation, beautification, improvement, maintenance, and enjoyment of Four Mile Run Park. Our mission is to engage and educate the public, and to maintain the trail system and natural lands around lower Four Mile Run to improve Four Mile Run Park, and to foster respect and stewardship for this unique urban ecosystem and its natural, historic, and recreational resources.

Our efforts have included:
  • Frequent nature and history walks/tours in Four Mile Run Park
  • Stream clean-ups and invasive vine removal
  • Citizen science: bird counts, frog call surveys, wildlife photography
  • Tree planting

Our next big project idea is a kayak/canoe launch on Four Mile Run. Improved access for non-motorized watercraft supports healthy active recreation in the remarkable ‘nearby nature’ of Four Mile Run. Your support during Spring2Action will help support this and other Four Mile Run Conservatory projects to enhance Four Mile Run and its value to city residents.
