Children playing in a clean, clear Accotink Creek
during the drought, August 2007

What a great day for watching crayfish in Accotink Creek near Stafford West,
a natural oasis the Fairfax City citizens want to preserve for all to enjoy and
learn about nature for many generations!

A fun place to visit and experience all the life in Accotink Creek.
The water was low, clean and cold due the drought.
It was fun without the hot, dirty water dumped into the creek from roofs, streets
and parking lots via storm drains.
