We are seeking ideas, projects, and members to improve our conservation efforts at the Alexandria Chapter. We will also network with the other Virginia IWLAs to gather ideas.
Chapter Member, Guy Cox and wife, completed a survey of the property looking for invasive plant species in May, and have determined we have a pristine landscape absent nearly all invasive species. We would like to maintain this state by posting more information and educating our membership.
If you have any conservation projects or would like to become a member of the Conservation Committee, please contact us.
Save Our Streams: Virginia Save Our Streams (SOS) is a program of the Izaak Walton League of America. Founded in 1922, the Izaak Walton League is one of the nation’s oldest and most respected conservation organizations. Virginians have the right to know whether our streams are safe for swimming, fishing, playing, and drinking. Virginia Save Our Streams monitors water quality of Virginia’s streams and educates the public about the importance of clean water.
Our Chapter's SOS Chairperson is Eric Brown.
The chapter seeks volunteers to help start a stream-monitoring program for five areas around the property. If interested contact Eric Brown or Akiko Tachibana on how you can help.
