Realtor - Amanda S. Davidson: Kingstowne Lake Clean Up Day May 11, 2019 – Alexandria, Va 22315

Kingstowne Lake Clean Up Day May 11, 2019 – Alexandria, Va 22315

Kingstowne Lake is one of, if not the most well-known part of Kingstowne. It’s a place to walk, run, meetup, or just sit down and enjoy watching the water. The lake is home to fish, turtles, ducks, geese, even a gorgeous blue heron and countless other birds. Quite often it’s featured on the front of the Kingstonian magazine and there’s not a person I know who lives in the area that doesn’t drive by the lake regularly as they tend to daily life in Kingstowne.

Kingstowne Lake 

All of this sounds wonderful and it is – Kingstowne Lake is an integral part of our community.

 

That said, the lake really needs help. Trash piling up in and around the lake is getting worse by the day. It’s from a combination of sources and aside from being unsightly, the trash is a detriment to the lake and the animals that call it home. There are kind individuals who devote their time to picking up trash but, the attention it needs is far too much for a small group of individuals to keep up with.

Kingstowne Lake  

The lake is currently the responsibility of Kingstowne Residential Owners Corporation and Halle but, they would like for the county to take it over. This transfer will cause improved maintenance and oversight however, the process can for it to happen can take up to two years. In the meantime, volunteers are always needed for trash pickup. This can certainly be done anytime and is encouraged if you’re out for a stroll around the lake.

 

If you prefer a more organized event please consider volunteering on May 11, 2019. The Kingstowne Lake Improvement Association is holding a clean up day starting at 9am. Volunteers will meet at the gazebo by Chancery Of Kingstowne condos and then pair off to start cleaning up. Everyone is welcome to join, the more volunteers the better.

Kingstowne Lake 

If you live in the Kingstowne area and value the lake as part of our community please come out and support this cause. There’s no obligation on how long you stay to help clean, every little bit helps!

Good morning, Amanda - however people choose to participate, this is a nice shout-out for Kingstown Lake and our parks in general.  Being a good citizen is not so difficult.

Good morning Amanda S. Davidson, I hope many will volunteer and help clean the lake. Who knows how long it would be before the county takes over. If they want to enjoy the beauty of this lake, they must be part of keeping it clean at least by not leaving trash behind.

Good morning Amanda - a cleanup day and adopting a part of the area is always a good idea

HI Amanda... great shout-out to clean up the Kingstowne Lake. It always bothers me that people pollute this way. Hope you have a big bunch of volunteers sign up for clean-up duty!

Amanda S. Davidson - Lakes are so important to a community and they do require a lot of maintenance. A group of volunteers can only do so much; yet every bit helps. This seems to be a universal problem. When my daughter lived in Japan, they had an annual "Clean the Ocean," day and kids got off school. Since she was a Teacher, she enjoyed having the day off with students to participate in cleaning up the ocean and the beaches. I wish we had a National Holiday for that premise here in America too. Lakes are homes to so many different aquatic life as you mentioned. All of them deserve a chance at survival. Being part of a community, everyone should do their part to be active and help where help is needed. 

Kingstowne Lake is a gift to the residents and visitors of the Community. I hope the word gets out as a result of your wonderful message and everyone shares in the responsibility for a cleanup day. For a City with four seasons, these types of beautification efforts will be worth it.

Barbara Todaro we did that last year and I have to say spring was missed. Stay dry today!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP Clean The Ocean day in Japan sounds like something the US should adopt too. What a wonderful idea. Mother Earth always needs help and I hope that everyone considers doing just a little more to help keep her clean.
