Who we are
We are an informal group of people from Clifton (both Greater Clifton and the Town of Clifton) who have gotten together to help our neighbors protect the natural beauty of Clifton.
Five acre zoning was put in place in the 1980's to protect the Occoquan Reservoir, which provides water to over a million people. Our area therefore became a little island in the midst of suburbia where nature can thrive - as long as we protect it.
Our two-fold plan is to use social and traditional media to help people get to know the wonders that surround them and to give them suggestions for what they can do on their own properties to create a sanctuary for the rest of the living world.
