PARKSIDE

MICHAEL MCDONNELL

Hidden Oaks Nature Center Manager

Happy Birthday Hidden Oaks Nature Center! My grandson asked me recently, “Papah, do you like working in a park?” I get asked that question a lot, mostly with envy from various dedicated but tied-to their-desk office workers.

For more than 36 years, I have enjoyed the seasonal views of trees and wildlife through my office window – 25 of which have been at Hidden Oaks Nature Center. I’ve taken pride in managing various Park Authority cultural and natural resources and nurturing a love of all things natural with thousands of visitors each year, just as my childhood love of the outdoors was nurtured growing up in the lush greens of Puerto Rico.

Hidden Oaks, the Park Authority’s first nature center, began in 1969 as “that little building in the woods over there,” built about 100 yards from the Park Authority’s first headquarters, in what is now the Packard Center in Annandale Community Park. When it opened 50 years ago, astronauts had walked on the moon, Woodstock had just wrapped up, and the first Earth Day was still six months away.

We’ve had many successes at Hidden Oaks over the last half-century, including our indoor exhibit, “The Urban Forest – Habitats and Havens,” our rain garden parking lot and our outdoor natural playground, Nature Playce, where children personally connect to nature through play. Corporate and private donors have provided generous grants, scholarships and program funding to ensure stewardship education is available for everyone, and the most recent park bond will help fund future renovations and improvements to accommodate even more programs at Hidden Oaks.

Our golden-anniversary theme is “Hidden Oaks, the Next 50 Years,” and it gives us an opportunity to reflect on our accomplishments and rededicate ourselves to preserving our precious natural and cultural resources. Fifty years from now, when Hidden Oaks celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2069, I can only hope my grandson will be able to guide some 3-year-old to experience its magic, and perhaps be called upon to answer the same question he asked of me. Our personal connection to nature is what drives our impulse to respect these precious resources and ensure their wonders will be here for generations to come.

Fall 2019


Feeling stressed? Jump on a boat and cast a line at one of Fairfax County’s picturesque waterfront parks! Fall is a great time to go fishing because the cooler water temperature brings fish closer to the surface, and the thrill of catching your own fish gives you a satisfying sense of accomplishment. “I’ve caught more fish than he has,” declared 12-year-old Marc Russo during a recent fishing class he took with his father, Tim, at Riverbend Park. The father-and-son team are regular participants in the River Fishing by Boat class for different reasons.

with

l l a F

g n i h Fis

“He likes getting out on the river to go fishing, and I like boating and spending time with him,” said Tim, an economics professor from Fairfax. “The instruction here is good, they supply everything you need for the class, and the instructors know the river well enough to tell you where the fish tend to hang out.” “What fish live in the Potomac River?” asked one young student as he prepared to go out on a boat with his father and brother. “You’ll find small-mouth bass, catfish, and bluegills,” veteran angler and instructor Darryl Brewer enthusiastically replied. “There are large-mouth bass, too, but you have to know how to get to their special places where they tend to hang out.” Through the eyes of each first-time student, Brewer gets to relive his own introduction to fishing more than five decades ago, when he was just 4 years old. Growing up, he often cast a line with his brothers and friends off Long Island, New York, and today, he looks forward to sharing the joy of each student’s first catch at Riverbend Park. “One day, a man and his 6-year-old son went out together for the first time, and the fishing conditions weren’t the greatest,” he recalled. “I was concerned that the little boy would come back disappointed, but they stuck with it, and you should have seen the look on his face when he caught his first fish! He might have been the happiest kid in Fairfax County that day.” In addition to the fun, Brewer says fishing offers life skills like patience, safety, respect for nature, and what Marc Russo calls the most important tip, “to not stand up in the boat.” Each outing provides an opportunity to disconnect from the hectic pace of everyday life and decompress amid tranquil waters and the calming, natural setting with glimpses of bald eagles, turkeys, turtles and other wildlife along the shore. What’s more, fishing is a sport anyone can enjoy at any age. It’s a great way to bond with family and friends, and the treasured memory of shared experiences lasts a lifetime whether the fish are biting or not.

Fall’s

Autumn’s crisp days and colorful foliage provide the perfect setting for an invigorating walk through the woods. As the leaves change from green to a glorious palette of bright gold, orange and red, several colorful bird species take on more subdued hues.

Colorful Swan Song

“Fall is the most challenging time of year for bird watchers, because the changing plumage makes it more difficult to identify the migrating birds” said Park Authority naturalist Tony Bulmer. “In spring, the male birds are at their brightest because they’re trying to attract a mate. Brighter colors ensure the species will continue.” Once mating season is over, Bulmer says the birds gradually molt, or lose their bright feathers as the seasons change, making it difficult to distinguish the males from the less-colorful females. By fall, their toned-down appearance helps assure the species will survive through fall and winter. “The subdued color helps camouflage the birds because there aren’t as many leaves to provide cover from predators,” Bulmer said. “All warblers will develop a fall wardrobe and so will goldfinches and robins.” Bird behavior also changes with the seasons. Fall’s shorter days trigger migration to warmer climates for most. Other birds that stay through winter will flock together. “It’s not uncommon for bird boxes to have as many as eight bluebirds communing together in winter because they’re trying to stay warm on cooler nights,” Bulmer said. “The rest of the year, it’s just mom, dad and the babies, and everyone else gets kicked out.” Feeding habits also change with the seasons. Fewer insects and wild plant food sources are available in fall and spring, which is why birds are more likely to be attracted to your backyard bird feeder. “Hummingbird feeders in the fall are really important when the birds are migrating,” Bulmer said. “Adult males leave first, and the rest of the family follows later in a flock, so when they stop at the feeder, they’re really fun to watch.” Traditional backyard feeders or suet will attract other birds in the fall giving you the best chance of catching a glimpse of their lifestyles as the seasons come and go. “Most birds migrate at night,” Bulmer said. “In the daytime, they sleep and pig out to prepare for night travels in flocks.” Keep the feeder full throughout winter, and you’ll help year-round residents like cardinals and robins survive and thrive until the cycle starts anew in the spring. Fall is a great time to learn about birds and other resident wildlife in parks. To find a program near you, turn to the Nature section.

ap M l i a r T y r e v Disco ily m a F , n u F o t Leads Adventures

Green Spring

It didn’t take long for Sharon and Joel Clark to blast off for fun with this year’s Fairfax County Park Discovery Trail Map – Transportation Edition. In just a couple of weeks, the Springfield couple and their three young children explored eight of 12 featured parks and became one of the first families to win prize packets valued at $93 each and enter a drawing for a new bicycle. “We first heard about the map activity when a friend told us about it last year, and it definitely encouraged us to try new parks,” Sharon said enthusiastically. “We went to places we had never gone before, and throughout the year we went back several times.” The Clarks jumped at the chance to set out on new adventures with this year’s map, which highlights each park’s connection to transportation history and celebrates the 50th anniversary of man’s giant leap from the Earth to the Moon. With a picnic lunch in hand, the Clarks often made a day of it, exploring each park’s distinctive features on foot. “I like for the children to walk and get some exercise, and it’s fun to walk around and see the animals at Frying Pan Farm Park,” she said. The kids love the wagon rides!”

Gardens

Sharon says the kids also enjoyed the animals and trails at Hidden Pond Nature Center, the hands-on activities at Hidden Oaks Nature Center and a scavenger hunt at Sully Historic Site. They were excited to see a train cross the trestle at Lake Accotink Park, and they all had a ball exploring the natural world at Riverbend Park.

“We did a lot of walking and found a flat, pebbly, beachy area next to the water,” she recalled fondly. “That place is great, and the kids had so much fun throwing rocks into the water.” Sharon’s favorite destination was the expansive, wetland oasis at Huntley Meadows Park. “One time we saw an eagle, another time we saw a muskrat and we always see different animals there,” she said. Perhaps one of the biggest surprises was the Huntley Mea dows prize packet contents, which included tickets for boat, train and carousel rides, mini-golf and camping at Burke Lake Park, one of Joel’s favorite destinations. “That was so special,” Sharon said. “Last year we set up the camp site together and had dinner there with the children. Joel and our eldest son, MiFallyear, 2019 cah, spent the night camping while I took Caleb and Alina home. This Caleb will be old enough to spend the night at the campground, too.” Ultimately Sharon hopes the experience instills in her children a greater appreciation for nature and its wonders.

You could say Noble McCartney has rock star status at Spring Hill RECenter. The WWII veteran and retired lawyer turned 101 in May, and RECenter members turned out along with his wife, Anne, and personal trainer, Kristen Pierce, to wish him a happy birthday. When asked about next year’s celebration, McCarney said, “Well, I feel pretty good, so yes, I think I’ll be here next year!” McCartney’s inspiring story was featured in the fall 2018 Parktakes and is available online: bit.ly/NM1918.

VOLUNTEER PROFILE

Katie and Abigail Clinton

Falls Church-Annandale Lions Club

It’s said that you get only one chance to make a good first impression. When Katie and Abigail Clinton got their first look at the new Backlick Park since they volunteered to help clean it up a year ago, they were clearly wowed.

“It’s an absolutely remarkable transformation,” Clinton said enthusiastically. “The path, the playgrounds, the growing grass – it all looks great. The whole park is more open and inviting and quite an attraction now.”

2017

It’s a far cry from what they found on the day they and other members of the Falls Church-Annandale Lions Club first adopted the community park in 2017. It had been taken over by invasive plants, the aging playground equipment was in disrepair and trash was strewn throughout. “If you blinked, you would have missed this park, and there wasn’t much to miss,” Clinton recalled. “It was kind of sad and suffering from a lack of attention.”

While the Park Authority’s Area 2 crew used heavy machinery to clear masses of invasive overgrowth, the Clintons and other volunteers manually cut invasive plant roots from the land. They also picked up trash, painted benches and spread mulch around playground equipment to help give children a safe place to play. 2019

“It was kind of fun,” said Clinton’s daughter, Abigail, a 12-year-old Frost Middle School student. “It makes me feel like I’ve had a permanent impact on my community for the better, and that makes me feel good about myself. When you help your community, you help yourself.”

Today, the park features a new shelter and picnic tables, new playground areas, a new fitness area, renovated and lighted tennis courts and a newly paved parking lot and trails, and grass is growing in the area the Clintons helped rid of invasive plants. Voter-approved park bonds paid for the new amenities. Now the Clintons are eager to recruit neighborhood volunteers to help keep the park looking new.

2019

VOLUNTEER! 14 14

“The Park Authority made a great investment in this park, and I hope the community is appreciative,” Clinton said. “We are still committed to twice-a-year, volunteer cleanups, and the goal is to have the neighborhood take ownership and know they have the support of the Lions.”

lent skill proficiency. Students increase confidence and ability to perform swimming skills with and without assistance or flotation devices. Skills include blowing bubbles with face submerged under water, floating on front and back and gliding or swimming at least two body lengths using arms and legs. Parent participation may be required.

The Fairfax County Park Authority offers parks and facilities that are accessible to all Fairfax County residents. For information on accessible features or issues associated with usage, call (703) 324-8563 or visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks. If it has been a month or longer since the student has participated in a swimming lesson, we suggest repeating the previous course completed. If you have any questions about which class is right for you or your child, please contact the Adapted Aquatics Coordinator at (703) 324-8565. For safety reasons and to ensure customers get the maximum aquatic program benefits, the Park Authority reserves the right to remove students from an inappropriate class and either issue a refund or place them, when possible, in a class that better matches their ability. Practice and Repetition are keys to success Each student progresses at a different speed in learning aquatic skills. Students often repeat a level several times before developing the endurance and skill proficiency necessary for advancement. Repeating a level does not constitute failure; it is to be expected. Mastering skills takes time, practice, and patience.

A Life Like Yours

Aquatics The Fairfax County Park Authority’s aquatic facilities offer something for everyone. From infants to senior citizens to people with special needs, we serve all levels of swimming ability and aquatic interests. Monthly calendars listing pool hours are available at the Park Authority’s nine RECenters and online at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/ parks. Follow guidelines when registering If it has been a month or longer since the student has participated in a swimming lesson, we suggest repeating the previous course completed. If you have any questions about which class is right for you or your child, please contact the aquatic staff at your favorite RECenter. For safety reasons and to ensure customers get the maximum aquatic program benefits, the Park Authority reserves the right to remove students from an inappropriate class and either issue a refund or place them, when possible, in a class that better matches their ability level. Practice and Repetition are keys to success Each student progresses at a different speed in learning aquatic skills, depending on several factors including class attendance, coordination, water familiarity and outside practice. Students often repeat a level several times before developing the endurance and skill proficiency necessary for advancement. Repeating a level does not constitute failure; it is to be expected. Mastering skills takes time, practice and patience. Combining course levels When enrollment is low, course levels may be combined to avoid class cancelations.

Aquatics Small Group Lessons RECenters now offer small-group lessons. This new lesson option complements the Park Authority’s other swim instruction offerings: • Private Lessons for students ages 3 to adult offer one-on-one instruction solely based on the student’s skill level. • Semi-private lessons for students ages 3 to adult offer instruction between two participants of similar ability and one instructor. • Small-group lessons will offer the same curriculum as the larger, traditional group lessons but to a smaller group of swimmers. Small-group lessons offer lower student-to-teacher ratios, more personalized instruction and more practice time than large-group lessons. Traditional group lessons offer a comprehensive curriculum for participants ranging in age from 6 mos. to adult.

One-on-One Swim Lessons NEW! One-on-One Swim Lessons

(3-Adult) Children must leave parent willingly, be comfortable in the water, and be able to follow simple directions. Private swim lessons are a great way to improve swimming skills and water safety techniques of any level. With one-on-one swim lessons, an instructor can spend more time helping overcome obstacles which may require more time or dedication than a standard swim lesson. Visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/ parks/parktakes and click on “Find a Program” for listings.

Practice Healthy Swimming Habits

Accidents in the pool involving vomit or fecal matter require the pool to be closed to clean and sanitize the water. Under Health Department standards recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), accidents involving fecal matter now require longer pool closure. Prevention is far better than clean up, so please follow the CDC guidelines: • Children (and adults) who have had diarrhea in the last two weeks should not go swimming. • Be sure to use the bathroom before getting into the pool and take frequent bathroom breaks. For public health reasons, standard diapers cannot be worn in the pool. Children who are not yet toilet trained must wear snug fitting plastic pants and/or a swim diaper under their bathing suit. Waist and legs on plastic pants or swim diapers must be snug enough to contain matter that could contaminate the pool. Please check diapers often and change them in the locker room not on the pool deck. • Adults who have continence issues should refrain from using the pool. • Shower before entering the pool and after using the toilet. • Avoid swallowing pool water or even getting it in your mouth.

Ice Skating Ice Skating Ice skating classes:

• Offered at Mt. Vernon Ice Arena at Mt. Vernon RECenter and at Fairfax Ice Arena. • Students should report 15 minutes before class and be ready to go on the ice at class time. • Prior to the first class, students should attend a public session to become accustomed to the ice and to determine proper skate fitting. • Recommended clothing is a sweater or jacket, knit hat, gloves or mittens and warm, comfortable slacks. • Ice skating classes include free admission to public skating sessions equal to the number of classes. All group-lesson students are entitled to free rental skates for use during lessons and practice sessions. • Although there are no equipment requirements except as noted in Hockey 1 and up, head protection (hockey or biking helmets), knee and elbow protection are strongly recommended.

Doing More with Specialists

The Park Authority contracts with specialists in different areas to offer a broad range of programs and times to skate. Service partners who rent the ice at the Mt. Vernon RECenter include • Youth and Adult Hockey Leagues/Clubs • Adult drop-in hockey • Figure Skating Clubs • Special Olympics

A list of these organizations is available online: www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/recenter/mount-vernon/ice-arena.

DONOR PROFILE

David Gorsline,

Huntley Meadows Park

“I was not a particularly outdoorsy kid,” said David Gorsline as he reflected on his childhood living in Ohio. “My appreciation for nature grew gradually as an adult, after I moved to the metro D.C. area in 1980.”

Gorsline says a chance encounter with a bird-watching couple along the Huntley Meadows Park boardwalk first sparked his interest in birds in the late 1980s, and as he learned more about nature, he developed a passion for the outdoors. These days the software engineer devotes 50 volunteer hours annually to help with conservation efforts at Huntley Meadows Park.

“I’m on a volunteer team that helps monitor nest boxes,” he said. “We clean out the boxes and remove rubbish from the year before, lay down fresh wood chips, then monitor the nest boxes during breeding season. We count the eggs and once they’re hatched, we count what’s left, record the data and repeat the cycle.” The work is important because the bird boxes mimic tree cavities that are in short supply in urban areas. They provide shelter for cavity-dwelling birds, and cleaning the boxes removes parasites, mites and ticks that could threaten their health.

As Gorsline became more involved with park volunteer efforts, he started to think of other ways he could make a difference. The wetland oasis has become a favorite destination of his for outdoor recreation for the past 25 years, and he recognized that funding for stewardship education is sometimes in short supply. So Gorsline decided to leave a bequest to the Fairfax County Park Foundation in his will to benefit Huntley Meadows Park.

“I have tried to allocate funds in my will for homeless populations, schools and universities and other things that I think are important,” he said thoughtfully. “Funding for things like park internships for new students is always a challenge, and so are general resources for full-time staff,” he said. Gorsline hopes his gift will help plant a legacy of conservation and learning at Huntley Meadows Park for generations to come. To find out how you can make a difference through the Fairfax County Park Foundation, visit www.fairfaxparkfoundation.org.
