Fairfax County, Virginia
Huntley Meadows Park is an oasis located near Washington, D.C., in Fairfax County, Virginia. The park was set aside to protect, manage and provide public access to wetlands and surrounding natural areas. Burgess & Niple led a team of experts to design the renewal of the Huntley Meadows wetland hydrology and wildlife habitat.
To maintain the 60-acre central wetlands and prevent the area from becoming wet meadow, B&N designed a wetland management plan. The plan provides a habitat for a variety of species including crayfish, fish, birds and beavers.
