Support Youth Conservation Internships during Spring2ACTion!

Wednesday, April 24, is Alexandria's Spring2ACTion giving day, an opportunity to support the work of local nonprofit organizations, including the Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation. This year our $7,500 Spring2ACTion campaign supports paid internships for local youth!

Four Mile Run conservation interns work as a team on such tasks as woodland assessment, photographic wildlife surveys, invasive plant removal, water quality monitoring, and assistance with outdoor programs for children/youth. Through their experience, Four Mile Run conservation interns develop skills in natural resource conservation, field research, and leadership, and they have even co-authored scientific research (see the 2020 microplastics study in the Virginia Journal of Science).

Help build the future of conservation at Four Mile Run with a Spring2ACTion donation!
