PARKSIDE Volunteers are the unsung heroes of Fairfax County parks. They play a large role in the support of our park clean ups, acting as park and facility ambassadors in RECenters and nature centers, history docents at our historical sites, assisting on golf courses and in introducing children and adults to the wonders of nature, history and our local culture. Each year, we honor those who provide outstanding volunteer service to the Park Authority at the annual Elly Doyle Park Service Award ceremony. The awards were established in 1988 in honor of Ellamae Doyle’s many years of service and accomplishments as a member and chairman of the Park Authority Board. Her legacy continues through the efforts of volunteers working in our park system as well as the community atlarge. Now is the time to bring to light the efforts of those who volunteer their time to help make Fairfax County parks so special. Nominate someone you know and help us express appreciation for their selfless contributions of time and talent. Elly Doyle Awards are given to those who have made outstanding service contributions during the past year leading to the advancement of recreational and/or educational opportunities or the protection of natural, cultural or historic resources in Fairfax County. Groups and individuals are eligible to receive the awards. One youth award is presented each year. In addition to the “Ellies,” the Park Authority provides special recognitions through the Sally Ormsby Environmental Stewardship Award, the Harold L. Strickland Partnership and Collaboration Award and the Mayo Stuntz Cultural Stewardship Award. Booker T. Washington wrote, “Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.”

Discover Your Parks, Have Fun and Win! Looking for something fun and educational to do this summer? Pick up a free Discovery Trail Map at any staffed Fairfax County Park Authority facility or public library and chart your course for adventure, prizes and a whole lot of fun! Christian Kam visited all 12 of the featured parks on last year’s map and was delighted to discover a wide variety of things to see, learn and do. “I really liked going to the nature centers to learn about animals and facts about them,” the Vienna 6th grader said. “I thought that was fun.” In fact, really fun was how he described every discovery he and his mother, Jessica Kam, made along the trail. At Hidden Oaks Nature Center, “It was really fun and they had this turtle…” and at Huntley Meadows Park, “That was fun, and I liked stopping along the trail and reading about animals and what they look like and what their tracks look like,” and at Burke Lake Park, “one place we were walking on the trail we spotted a baby deer,” he said enthusiastically. He also spotted the map’s ambassador, a cardboard cutout named Lord Fairfax VI, at several parks and had fun posting photos with him in the Park Authority’s #WhereIsLordFairfax Instagram promotion. “That was fun, and it encouraged me to go to different parks and try to find him and collect the stickers at the same time,” he said. This year’s map highlights a wide variety of animals that inhabit Fairfax County parks. Children and adults who collect map stickers at eight of the featured parks get a prize packet valued at $93 full of tickets to park amusements, such as mini golf, camping and boat, train and carousel rides. They’re also entered in a drawing for one of four new bicycles donated by Spokes, Etc. and Trek through the Fairfax County Park Foundation. Histori

Smoothie Bar Boosts Nutrition at Oak Marr

Here’s a great way to satisfy your post-workout cravings and boost nutrition, too! The new Oak Marr RECenter Smoothie Bar offers made-toorder, blended smoothies and protein shakes using a combination of flash-frozen or fresh organic fruits and vegetables. The result is a tasty, satisfying treat chock full of nutrients with no added sugar or fillers. “It’s delicious,” said RECenter patron Diana Gosciniak as she picked up a smoothie after her RECenter aquatics class. “They use good fruit, and they mix in a lot of veggies, too. Sometimes I order two and take one home to my husband.” The smoothie bar ties in with the Park Authority’s mission to support healthy lifestyles. That commitment includes using only pure ingredients with high nutritional value. The best-selling flavor has been Royal Karma with its organic strawberries, banana, oranges, chia seeds and unsweetened coconut milk. Gosciniak says Green Goddess is also a tasty combination of organic celery, apple, cucumber, chia seeds, mango, spinach, kale coconut water, parsley, lemon, turmeric and ginger root. “It’s pure and fresh and has a lot of flavor to it,” she said. “If you like fruit, it’s better to drink this than soda.” Green smoothies have become a major trend in health because they’re a quick and convenient way to consume nutrient-rich, dark green, leafy vegetables without tasting them. The sweetness of the fruit masks the flavor, so all you taste is banana, mango, pineapple or strawberry as you consume a healthy dose of spinach, kale or any other vegetable you put in. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only 25 percent of people consistently consume the recommended five to nine fruits and vegetables daily. The average green smoothie contains three to five servings of fruits and vegetables. So, if you need to increase produce in your diet, an Oak Marr Smoothie Bar blend may be the answer for you!

Smoothie Bar is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday – Friday; 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. - 8 p.m. Sunday.

Kids Go Wild for Naturalist’s Campfire Camp If your kids crave outdoor adventure, then they’re bound to love Naturalist’s Campfire Camp at Hidden Pond Nature Center. This summer session is an outdoor lover’s adventure combo pack chock-full of hands-on activities, survival techniques, native wildlife, history, campfires and more. “It’s really fun,” said 10-year-old Colben Krzos, one of three brothers who attended the new camp last summer. “I personally like normal fishing, turtle fishing and netting.” The tight bond between the outdoor-loving triplets was evident as they eagerly interjected memories of their shared camp experiences turtle fishing. “You can see the turtles before they bite,” chimed in Owen, “so you can see what kind of turtles they are and how strong they are,” said Logan. The purpose of turtle fishing was to identify the red-eared slider species and relocate the large, former pet turtles that people set free in the park pond to more suitable habitats. “We learned that they are not supposed to be there,” Owen recalled. “The red slider was eating some of the food the fish eat, so the fish weren’t getting enough food.” The brothers also explored animal tracks, learned which berries are safe to eat and discovered how to cross a stream without getting wet by making a temporary dam. “We built it piece by piece with big stones,” Logan recalled. “You leave gaps so you could walk across but the water could still get through.” Colben was fascinated by the frogs and the distinctive sounds they make at Peeper Swamp. “There are tons of them there,” he said, “and they peep loudest in spring.” “They’re always telling me facts about nature and wildlife – things I didn’t know,” said the boys’ mother, Kristina Watts, who has enrolled her children in Park Authority programs since they were 3 years old. “We really like nature, and we camp a lot and wanted them to learn how to build a campfire safely and be good stewards of the earth,” she said. “We learned different ways to build campfires,” Owen recalled, “and we learned how to make fire starters,” Logan said. That led to stories around the campfire and perhaps the sweetest camp memory of all. “You always get to make s’mores,” Colben said enthusiastically of the traditional marshmallow, chocolate and graham cracker treats. “The instructors are really nice, and they teach you how to do stuff and they explain how to do it.” Naturalists Campfire Camp is just one of hundreds of outdoor Park Authority camps offered throughout the summer. To see all the camp options, turn to the Camps section.

Volunteer Spotlight

VOLUNTEER PROFILE

West Potomac High School

RECenters have long helped people transition from one stage of life to the next, such as from walking to swimming, from injury to recovery or from employment to active golden years. These days, some West Potomac High School students are participating in a unique volunteer partnership with Mount Vernon RECenter designed to help them transition from the classroom to the workforce. “The goal of the program is for students to get community work experience,” said Fairfax County Public Schools employment transition representative Camilla Nordh. “They learn hard and soft skills and develop familiarity with their community, which helps promote independent living skills and vocational training.” Four days per week, the enthusiastic students spend a few hours helping with everything from groundskeeping to customer service. The responsibilities include renting skates to patrons, picking up trash on trails, raking leaves and cleaning interior surfaces, such as mirrors. “I like to pick up trash every day and cleaning the glass,” said senior Jose Garcia with an accomplished grin. “Sometimes we help out at the front desk and check people in,” said Josue Blanco Mereno with quiet determination. “Interacting with people boosts selfconfidence.” The volunteers seem joyful at the prospect of acquiring job skills while providing a service to the community. Guiding the students every step of the way is Glenn Wheeler, a former juvenile detention officer turned Fairfax County school instructional assistant. “I like working with kids, especially special needs kids,” he said with the affection of a proud parent. “They always try hard, and this was hard for them at first, but they got it.” These students are learning that they are making a real difference in the community as they take an important first step toward a productive and meaningful career path.

In keeping with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Fairfax County is committed to giving all citizens equal access to recreation and leisure opportunities. Park Authority activities, programs, camps and classes are inclusive, and reasonable accommodations are available for people with disabilities. ADA accommodations include sign interpreters, assistive listening devices, program modifications and inclusion support. To request accommodations, or for more information about adapted program opportunities, call (703) 3248563. The Park Authority makes every attempt to provide accommodations; however, fulfillment of requests received with less than 10 days’ notice cannot be guaranteed.

Facility Accessibility

The Fairfax County Park Authority offers parks and facilities that are accessible to all of Fairfax County residents. For information on accessible features or issues associated with usage, call (703) 324-8563 or visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks.

Adapted Aquatics The Park Authority’s award-winning Adapted Aquatics program offers individualized swimming and water activity instruction for individuals with physical and intellectual disabilities. The program’s structured setting is ideal for individuals who aren’t ready to learn basic swim skills in a general recreation environment. Classes are conducted by certified instructors and trained volunteers to support a low student-to-instructor ratio. For more information, call (703) 324-8565.

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 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.

Aquatics 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.

Attractions Come to the Parks for Picnics Chances are there’s a picnic-perfect park in your neighborhood. Parks offer exciting features for your family, company, club or church picnic. Depending upon the park, the attractions may include pedal boats, a carousel, an ice cream parlor, miniature golf, tennis, athletic fields, tour boats, train rides, swimming, volleyball and nature trails. Some special features are available year-round, others are offered seasonally. To check availability, picnic site features and to schedule your picnic, visit www.fairfaxcounty. gov/parks/picnics or call 703-324-8732.

Cub Run for Water Fun Year Round Slides, bubblers, fountains, a “river” current and other fun features turn the indoor leisure pool at Cub Run RECenter into a water playground. Here the temperature is tropical for 12 months of the year, but concerned parents never have to worry about kids getting sunburned! RECenter admission includes the leisure pool, which is open with all of its features operating on Monday and Wednesday, 4 p.m.-6 p.m.; Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, noon to 8 p.m.

Clemyjontri Park 6317 Georgetown Pike, McLean, Va. 703-388-2807 With its two-acre, fully accessible playground, Clemyjontri Park is a magical place for all children. In addition to track rides, balance beams, swings, and maze, the features include a carousel recessed to ground level and a picnic pavilion with tables that accommodate wheelchairs. Clemyjontri also operates a trackless train ride which provides children and adults with a fun ride around the front of the property. The park is open year-round from 7 a.m. to dusk. The carousel operates weekends only in April and May, 9:30 a.m. - 6 p.m. Open daily Memorial Day – Labor Day, 9:30 a.m. -1 p.m. Mon.- Fri.; 9:30 a.m.- 6 p.m. weekends. Open weekends only Sept. – Oct., 9:30 a.m. -6 p.m. The picnic pavilion may be reserved for a fee; additional picnic tables are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Cross County Trail Extending from Lorton in the south to Great Falls in the north, the 40-mile Gerry Connolly Cross County Trail runs through the heart of Fairfax County. The trail offers recreation, exercise, opportunities for contact with nature and history, and the “green” option of walking or biking instead of driving to work, to shopping centers or to Metro stations. For GCCCT maps, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/trails/crosscounty-trail.

Park Trails If you live in Fairfax County, there’s a good chance there’s a nature trail close to your backyard. Let the Park Authority’s Trail Buddy mapping tool be your guide: www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/trails.

DONOR PROFILE Matt Liddle REI Co-op Chart your course for adventure along Fairfax County trails this summer, and you may cross paths with Matt Liddle. The self-professed outdoor lover and regional REI partnership and philanthropy manager makes it his business to know, promote and help preserve public lands where he works and lives. “It’s a huge part of REI’s DNA,” he said. Liddle’s passion for the outdoors is rooted in the Pacific Northwest where he grew up. After moving to the D.C. area nearly a decade ago, he was inspired by the region’s many outdoor recreation options. “I think the best part of the area is the unbelievable network of long-distance trails, like the Gerry Connolly Cross County Trail (GCCCT),” he said enthusiastically. “I’m a cyclist, and for me the goal is to ride that thing from end to end this summer.” His personal quest includes a professional component in fulfilling REI’s purpose-driven commitment to increase access to outdoor recreation. Thanks to a generous REI grant through the Fairfax County Park Foundation, Fairfax County’s trail system now includes 15 new way-finding signs to help outdoor enthusiasts navigate their way on and off the 41-mile GCCCT. “Way-finding projects are underappreciated and a vital part of access,” he said. “When there are no signs, people are reluctant to explore trail branches because they don’t know where they go. Way-finding signs create more confidence for more people to enjoy more trails, and we love that.” The Fairfax County Park Authority way-finding project ties in nicely with REI’s vision to inspire, educate and outfit for a lifetime of outdoor adventure and stewardship. It’s a shared vision among the nation’s largest consumer cooperative’s 17 million members who volunteer their time and provide company resources to ensure the next generation has a first-hand connection to natural spaces.

To provide several options for our customers, camp length and times vary. Be sure to check number of days and hours for each camp. On rainy days or when substantial rain is expected, some outdoor camps may be canceled for the day. On code red days, campers will engage in outdoor activities during the day while taking in plenty of water and several shaded breaks. Many of our camps are held outdoors.

Our dog obedience classes help build a strong relationship between pet and handler by developing understanding and communication. Flexible training methods are employed for home management, problem solving and correction. Please note: • Dogs that display fear or aggression are not permitted in Park Authority classes. • Bring a shot record with proof of DHLA rabies and parvovirus shots to the first class. • All dogs must be legally licensed, vaccinated, wearing a visible dog license and leashed when entering or leaving the class area. • Check with instructor at first class for proper leashes, collars and other equipment. • An adult must stay with child handler if student is younger than 16 or does not have own transportation. • All classes are held outdoors. • Register the handler, not the dog; one handler/ one dog per registration. Some classes may have supply fees so check class descriptions for details. Any supply fees are payable to instructor at first class and are non-refundable.

Dog Training One-on-One

Lake Accotink Park offers individualized dog training lessons taught by an instructor with more than 20 years of experience actively training dogs, training other people how to train dogs and competing in dog sports. Sessions are customized to your dog’s level of behavioral development and tailored to your schedule. Includes a pre-session phone consultation with the instructor to determine your goals and to set a date and time for your first session. An excellent option for busy people who need more flexibility than weekly lessons can provide.

Off-Leash Dogs Welcome in Special Dog Parks

Owners of well-mannered canines can take their pets to fenced, off-leash dog parks for free play, a good run or a friendly romp with other dogs. FCPA has nine established dog parks: • Baron Cameron, 11300 Baron Cameron Ave., Reston • Blake Lane, 10033 Blake Lane, Oakton • Chandon, 900 Palmer Drive, Herndon • Grist Mill, 4710 Mt. Vernon Memorial Hwy., Alexandria • Lenclair, 6725 Lenclair St., Alexandria • Mason District, 6621 Columbia Pike, Annandale.  • Rock Hill District Park, 15150 Old Lee Road, Centreville. • South Run, 7550 Reservation Drive, Springfield  • Westgrove, 6801 Fort Hunt Road, Alexandria Most of the Park Authority dog parks are public/ private partnerships, developed in cooperation with sponsoring organizations of pet owners. Volunteers assist with monitoring and cleaning up the facilities, making users aware of dog park rules and regulations and reporting maintenance needs to the Park Authority. Dog parks are open year round from 7 a.m. to 30 minutes after sunset on weekdays and from 8 a.m. to 30 minutes after sunset on weekends and Federal
