Help Save Tysons Last Forest & Stream!!

posted Aug 16, 2012, 8:14 PM by Westwood Village

Old Courthouse Spring Branch Stream Valley, is often referred to as the lungs of Tysons Corner and is the last large forest left with a stream supporting a rich bio-diverse ecosystem in Tysons Corner.  Many of the species contained in Stream Valley are possibly the last of their kind inside of Tysons borders.
​The plans to transform Tysons Corner into a urban city include an option to pave over this forest to make way for exit ramps to major highways.  This last forest and stream are worth saving for our future generations.  ​To support the preservation of this beautiful and bountiful natural resource from destruction, you can help and here is how:
