Greg Crider

Member at Large

I have lived in the Mount Vernon area for over 40 years and retired from the US Department of Commerce in 2006 where I was a contract manager. I have lived on both sides of Route 1; one home was adjacent to Huntley Meadows Park where I often walked in from the back side using the deer trails. In 1987 I moved to the Williamsburg Manor neighborhood where I can put a canoe in Little Hunting Creek out my back door. My home on William and Mary Drive is the next to last property that has canoe access, but only around high tide. I enjoy the outdoors and our area’s beautiful local, state and federal parks. I’ve participated in the creek clean-ups for a number of years and serve as site leader for the annual creek cleanup in Colonel John Byers Park. In 2018, my team received the “Trashmaster Award” for our clean-up due to the largest turnout ever of 24 participants, including Girl Scout Troop 900. I am a member of the Friends of Dyke Marsh and of Huntley Meadows Park, and volunteer as a “Weed Warrior” for the National Park Service to keep invasive plants at bay along the GW Parkway and Dyke Marsh as well as to plant native plants.

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.
