Local Directory - Search Keep Virginia Beautiful for statewide opportunities to volunteer on projects that are helping to improve water quality!

Educational Activities - Get outside and learn about the environment with these environmental education activities! The materials were created by Fairfax County, but Harrisonburg is in the Potomac River Watershed as well so the information is still relevant. These materials are used with permission by Fairfax County, Virginia. Please contact the Watershed Education and Outreach section at or call 703-324-5500, TTY 711 for more information.
