Huntley Meadows Park Wetland Restoration Project
The central wetland at Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria, Va., has been slowly but steadily filling in with silt and debris, which reduces water depth and wildlife habitat. To restore the wetland to its 1980s condition and provide long-term habitat for a community of locally rare plants and animals, the Fairfax County Park Authority and the Huntley Meadows Park community completed an ambitious $3 million wetland restoration project in 2013. The wetland is now healthier than it’s been in over two decades. Learn more about the project at
