|COMING SOON: Reforest Fairfax is a gifting program designed to help restore the tree canopy in Fairfax County. Reaching the tree canopy goal requires planting an additional 2 million trees over the next 30 years. An average of 83,740 trees will need to be planted annually. For each gift certificate issued, five tree seedlings will be purchased and planted by Fairfax Releaf during the upcoming planting season. Access to an online indicator tool will be provided with each gift to find where your trees were planted.
|Capital One Bank donated $25,000 for the installation of a "Liberty Swing" at Clemyjontri Park. The design allows all children of all abilities play side-by-side and enjoy the swing. Several other donors will be recognized at the ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at 9:00am. The public is invited to join the celebration which will take place at Clemyjontri Park.

Park Fun Fact: The name Clemyjontri is derived from the donor's four children: Carolyn (Cl), Emily (Emy), John (Jon), and Petrina (Tri).
