Habitat for Humanity Prince William County is looking for volunteers for two outdoor projects on April 4. In the morning, we will clean up the Parkway Pond, our official Adopt-A-Stream site. This storm water management pond is a frequent clean up site because litter from the nearby shopping center flows into it. We last visited the Parkway Pond on Saturday, September 29, 2018. This visit was special because Habitat’s volunteers installed fencing material to help keep the litter from flowing into the watershed as well as collected 80 pounds of litter. This is a great project which a group of volunteers can complete in a few hours which both has a great visual impact and improves water quality.

In the afternoon, we’ll head five miles down the road to Dale City for a flood mitigation project. The people living downstream from the two drainage ditches we’ll be working on will really appreciate your hard work! Please visit our Volunteer Calendar to sign up for April 4!

Cleanup projects like these are part of Habitat for Humanity’s Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) program. We like to engage residents and community partners to revive neighborhoods and make them safe, inviting places to live. Community development projects improve the health and well-being of the general public. They revitalize public areas, remove blight, improve water quality and generally give residents improved access to public areas and a better sense of well-being and safety.

If you’d like to participate in a Community Development project, or you know of one that should take place, please contact us at 703-369-6708 or programs@habitatpwc.org.
