Open Space, Streams, and Trees are Conserved in the City of Fairfax
The five-acre Country Club Hills Recreation Corp. in the City of Fairfax, was placed in conservation easement to protect open space and the natural, ecological, recreational, and scenic values of the property. Daniels Run, part of the Accotink Creek Watershed, flows along the property and there is public trail access. The property is a habitat link with a neighboring park for many species of urban wildlife and migratory birds. Maintaining the land for recreational use also assures the community that it will not be developed commercially.
