Fairfax County Park Authority Resource Management Division Mission Statement We interpret and preserve Fairfax County's natural and cultural resources for the enjoyment, health and inspiration of current and future generations.

Description

The HSVC is designed to provide supervised and planned attention to the minor but crucial maintenance and repairs of those facilities and grounds by a group of concerned and knowledgeable volunteers. This group also serves as a presence for these unstaffed facilities to deter vandalism and unwanted activity.

  • Replacing door and window trims, stair railings, siding, and other basic carpentry work.
  • Painting of interior and exterior of buildings.
  • Removing invasive and problem causing plants.
  • Improving the landscape of the grounds.
  • Building and replacing fences.
  • Cleaning facilities in area of deterioration.
  • Caulking and sealing areas for water protection.
  • Documenting and reporting failing conditions.
  • Checking on facilities and grounds periodically.
  • Outreach at public events.
