Members of the community and local leaders gathered at Lake Accotink Park on Saturday, April 17, 2021, to celebrate the official opening and ribbon-cutting of the Margaret Kinder Education and Pollinator Garden. The ribbon was cut on the new garden following remarks by members of the Board of Supervisors and Friends of Lake Accotink Park (FLAP). Ms. Kinder’s plaque was previously installed to recognize her decades of service as an educator, naturalist, gardener and volunteer at Lake Accotink Park and the Ravensworth Farm community. A new interpretive sign high-lighting Ms. Kinder’s contributions to the park was also unveiled.
