Park Authority Budget 2022

A small victory - On May 10, 2022, the Board of Supervisors voted to approve the FY2023 budget with the full requested amount for natural resources. This area, though, remains a neglected stepchild of the Park Authority and deserves a much higher appropriation.

“Wildlife and its habitat cannot speak, so we must and we will.” – Theodore Roosevelt

Just $751,954 requested (but denied) for natural resources? Why not $1 million or $2 million? Or more? Natural resource conservation is a vital mission that is too often a neglected stepchild in our parks. Read the comments submitted by Friends of Accotink Creek
