A one-day beautification project is slated to take place next month at Lake Fairfax in Reston.

The Fairfax County Park Authority is seeking volunteers for a community stewardship celebration at Lake Fairfax Park on Sept. 24.

After a community celebration — which will feature a light breakfast and remarks by local officials — volunteers will begin beautifying the park.

Naturalists will be on site to help volunteers plant trees near the park’s core areas, remove invasive plants, and help with other beautification efforts.

“This is a great way to give of yourself and be part of something much larger,” the park authority said.

Volunteers can sign up online as individuals or as groups. Individuals 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

The event is in honor of National Public Lands Day, which falls annually on the fourth Saturday of September and encourages volunteers to help out on public lands.

The park is located at 1400 Lake Fairfax Drive and the event is part of FCPA Executive Director Jai Cole’s last stop on her parks tour this year.
