Youth Volunteers Recognized By Fairfax County Park Authority

It takes a lot to keep the Fairfax County Parks an asset to the area, and many times the volunteers are there to put the shine on the parks. Fairfax County Park Authority recognizes these volunteer efforts with the Elly Doyle Park Service Awards. This year, the two youth honorees were Maddie Sizer and Nicole Wargel, both working at parks in the Springfield area. According to Burke Connection, "Maddie, 14, is a young volunteer with a big responsibility in the visitor support area at Hidden Pond, and she relies on a King Snake named Arthur sometimes to break the ice with the children she’s teaching. “I love snakes,” she said, and Arthur “is a friendly snake.” Maddie was honored for being the go-to person to assist with programming, showing a genuine appreciation for the topics she discusses, providing visitor support, removing invasive plants, and helping to set the standard for animal care volunteers at Hidden Pond Nature Center in Springfield." As per Burke Connection, "Across Springfield, Nicole Wargel was also recognized with a youth honoree award for her work with the Friends of Lake Accotink Park group. Nicole manages to take on the communications duties for the Friends group while going to law school and doing her two-month internship with the Office of the Navy Judge Advocate General. She continues to perform her duties as FLAP’s communications director without missing a beat."
