Organizer Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation

Organizer of Four Mile Run Kayak Clean-Ups

We envision lower Four Mile Run as a cherished community resource and a model for natural lands stewardship in an urban setting.

Our mission is to promote nature, culture, and community at lower Four Mile Run through restoration, advocacy, recreation, and education.

The Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and volunteer organization formed in 2016 following years of community efforts to beautify and improve Four Mile Run Park.

See our Overview Map of lower Four Mile Run and the Park.

Our Annual Reports are available online. See our profile page on GuideStar for additional information. We now have a Platinum Seal of Transparency.
