Stewardship

One of the missions of the Green Bow Foundation is to provide an opportunity for its students to contribute to the improvements to our natural resources and our community. Students accomplish this mission through volunteering for projects on these lands and in our community.

Projects we have completed in the past have included rehabilitation of the Handicapped Hunters facility at Hogue Tract on Phelps Wildlife Management Area, assisting in military veteran fundraisers, conducting private lands trail work, non-native invasive species removal, teaching archery to military veterans, campground improvement project at the Northern Virginia 4H Education Center, and other projects.

We are always looking for opportunities to do projects which directly benefit our natural resource or the military/law enforcement community.

Upcoming projects for 2017 include:

A wild turkey habitat improvement project at Phelps Wildlife Management Area with partners the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, and the National Wild Turkey Federation.

A wildlife habitat improvement project with Fauquier County Parks and Recreation

Building an outdoor archery range for American Legion Post 247
