Volunteer at Ellanor C. Lawrence Park

Ellanor C. Lawrence Park

Volunteer with Snake Ellanor C. Lawrence Park, located in the Chantilly / Centreville area, offers a welcome change from a high-speed life. The natural and cultural history of the area is evident in every corner of the 600+ acre park. Visitors can spot wild turkey, deer and red fox in the meadow, at Walney Pond, or along four miles of meandering trails. A large variety of wildflowers, songbirds, and other plant and animal species can be studied. The Walney Visitor Center, whose core dates back to 1780, features live animal and history exhibits and a hands-on area to introduce the public to the park's past and present. Surrounding the center, remains of a springhouse, icehouse and other features link people to the land and offer clues to life on a 250-year-old Fairfax County farm. Slow down, take a breathe of fresh air and join us!
