BE A FRIEND OF FOUR MILE RUN PARK! 

HELP RESTORE AND IMPROVE THE PARK AS A NATURAL AND CULTURAL RESOURCE IN THE CITY.

DONATE TODAY!

Our 2017 #GivingTuesday campaign: 'Kick the Habit' met its initial goal to fund
two pilot water-filler station projects, currently in use!



Since then we've continued to build on our efforts. Our 2018 annual report explains how your involvement enables valuable conservation work.

 Just in the six months since then, your support has made possible:
  • Removal of more than 1,500 pounds of litter, mostly lightweight plastic and styrofoam
  • Engaging at least 400 people at 28 public and volunteer events
  • Analysis of microplastic pollution by a summer student intern
  • Ongoing documentation of wildlife, including eight species of dragonflies
  • Planning for future park improvements
Whether you paddled out to collect litter from the stream, walked the park trails counting birds or bats, or donated money to provide equipment for volunteer work, you have made a difference at Four Mile Run.

You can build on this momentum today:
Thank you for driving the success of the Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation. I wish you a happy Thanksgiving, and look forward to seeing you out at Four Mile Run!

Kurt Moser, President

Thanksgiving travelers might be thankful not to have to go
the distance our local ospreys migrate for winter,
flying as far away as southern South America, to return in April.

The Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and volunteer organization formed in 2016 following years of community efforts to foster the preservation, beautification, improvement, maintenance, and enjoyment of Four Mile Run Park.

The Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation, in partnership with the Alexandria Soccer Association, wants to make single-use water bottles a thing of the past at Alexandria's athletic fields. Though players and coaches often use refillable water bottles, a particular challenge has been larger events like tournaments and tryouts, due to the amount of water needed and the lack of water infrastructure--water bottle fillers and higher-flow faucets to fill large coolers and jugs--that support the waste-free use of water. Standard drinking fountains won't do.

With funding from Action Alexandria's Green Ideas Challenge and the commitment of City matching funds, we are well on our way to our goal of installing water-bottle and jug filling stations at the City's two highest-use fields, Simpson Stadium Park and Witter Fields. Alexandria Soccer already has water jugs/coolers, and its players have reusable bottles. Help us fill more.

The Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation is a non-profit corporation and volunteer organization formed this year following years of community efforts to foster the preservation, beautification, improvement, maintenance, and enjoyment of Four Mile Run Park. Our work this year has included community tree planting, invasive plant removal, and conservation and beautification activities that complement the City of Alexandria's wetland and stream restoration work. 'Kick the Habit' is our effort to address a major component of the litter found in City parks.
