After she retired in 2009 from a career as Geographic Consultant and Statistician-Demographer with the Census Bureau, Celia’s volunteer activities only increased. She is a Volunteer Naturalist and Program Assistant for Huntley Meadows Park and Historic Huntley. She is a lifetime member of the Friends of Huntley Meadows Park, and in June 2022 was elected to the Board of the Friends of Huntley Meadows Park. She is a certified Virginia Master Naturalist, and a member of the Audubon Society of Northern Virginia. She serves as volunteer Library Assistant at Fairfax County’s Martha Washington Library. Celia (on left, with daughter Lisa) has been a long-time Potomac Watershed Cleanup participant and site/team coordinator, especially on Little Hunting Creek, in her neighborhood of Stratford Landing.

Join Us!

Friends of Little Hunting Creek is a grassroots, volunteer-led organization that began as a group of genuinely concerned neighbors living near the creek. We need your help to protect this beautiful place – join us today!

Our vision is a beautiful, healthy creek that supports wildlife living in it and along its shores, and provides recreation and respite to humans that live nearby. We envision a shared sense of community responsibility for the health of the Little Hunting Creek watershed and appreciation for its beauty.
