Although the weekend has passed, we would like to recognize Memorial Day and honor the men and women who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. To recognize these special individuals, our resident carver, Ed Morrison of East Virginia Decoys carved these beautiful wooden statues representing our 5 military branches. Thank you Ed for sharing your works of art.

Celebrating Duck Dog Month with our fellow duck hunters at Delta Waterfowl Foundation. A hunter and his/her dog have not only a working relationship but a true friendship built on trust, discipline and respect. Some would say their dogs are their best friends. Feel free to post a picture of your "best friend".It’s a critical month for waterfowlers who want to take their retriever’s training to the next level, and to celebrate and inform those efforts, Delta Waterfowl is declaring June “North American Duck Dog Month.” So give your retriever a scratch behind the ears and stay tuned: Must-see duck-dog content is on the way!

A beautiful remembrance.You may have seen the beautiful Forget-Me-Not symbol that is now adorning the side of Mount Trashmore. The City created this design as a tribute to those we lost and those who were injured on May 31, 2019. Our Park & Landscape Services team was honored to be part of creating this remembrance, and we hope you all get a chance to stop by and see it over the next two weeks💙 #loveforvb ...
