Opportunities for Volunteers to Support Projects at Meadowood Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA)

Specialists at the Meadowood Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA) welcome volunteers to support their “to do” list! 
 
For all activities, tools, supplies, work gloves, bug repellent, snacks, and water to refill your container will be provided. You should wear work clothes and sturdy closed toe footwear, and bring a lunch if an all-day activity. 

There’s trail and bridge building to do on the hiking/biking trail on the west side parcel of the SRMA.  Other chores such as fence work, installing boundary signs and finishing the restoration area in front of the barn also need to be completed.  

Volunteers are always welcome and should plan to meet at the Lower Potomac Field Station, 10406 Gunston Rd, Lorton, Virginia, when tasks are available.
