The Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation is a non-profit corporation and volunteer organization formed following years of community efforts by concerned neighbors to foster the preservation, beautification, improvement, maintenance, and enjoyment of Four Mile Run Park in Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia.
Our mission is to engage and educate the public, and to maintain the trail system and natural lands around lower Four Mile Run to improve Four Mile Run Park, and to foster respect and stewardship for this unique urban ecosystem and its natural, historic, and recreational resources.
Our vision is a Four Mile Run Park that is fully utilized and appreciated by its neighbors and other stakeholders as an important part of community life, a resource for recreation, and a model for natural lands maintenance in an urban setting.
