The Future of Claude Moore Park

The National Park Service (NPS), George Washington Memorial Parkway office, is undertaking a planning process to decide on the future of the Claude Moore farm area of Turkey Run Park near McLean.  NPS has prepared some concepts which are online as of September 26, the first day of a 30-day comment period. This is an opportunity to advocate for the conservation and restoration of natural resources and for enhancing habitat along the George Washington Memorial Parkway.

ASNV sent comments earlier advocating for more natural habitat and native plants that support birds and other wildlife.  ASNV recommended that park officials conduct a comprehensive biological inventory in all seasons to inform decision-making about future uses. You can comment here .
