Wanted: Volunteers for Falls Church Park Restoration Next Saturday

The City of Falls Church is looking for volunteers to help with habitat restoration at Crossman Park.

The city needs people to help install native plants between 10 a.m.-noon next Saturday (Nov. 23). People are encouraged to enter the park adjacent to 501 Van Buren Street and follow the gravel path into the park.

“Tools, gloves, water and snacks will be provided,” according to the city. “No need to register unless your group is five or more people… This is appropriate for children, but direct parental supervision is required.”

Located at 535 N. Van Buren Street, the park is heavily wooded and has a stream running through it.

People interested in helping out can contact Green Space Manager Jeremy Edwards at [email protected] and can register for the event by calling 571-238-5178.
