Board Forms in Arlington to Save Lubber Run Amphitheatre
For two years individuals have struggled to save Arlington’s Lubber Run Amphitheatre in Arlington, Virginia. To help this effort the board has formed a nonprofit foundation dedicated to bring county government and citizens together to return the amphitheatre located near Ballston as a public venue for outdoor entertainment.
Free programs at the Lubber Run Amphitheatre have been a staple of Arlington\’s cultural life for more than 40 years.
We are in the process of gathering signatures to persuade Arlington County to save the amphitheatre.

Community Action in Our Parks: A Case Study of Success
Wednesday, March 23, 2011 7:00 pm Arlington Central Library Auditorium 1015 N. Quincy Street
Join us for a program to highlight the importance of individual and community action in reclaiming our parks and natural areas. The program will focus on the success story of the restoration of Lubber Run Park. In 2000 Lubber Run Park was covered with invasive exotic plant species that were rapidly crowding out and killing the native plants and turning the park into a wasteland of weeds. Neighbors and community volunteers played a critical role in educating the community and pushing for the dramatic restoration of this beloved park. These efforts might be duplicated in other natural areas.
Introductory Remarks by Arlington County Board Chairman Chris Zimmerman
Speakers Include: Greg Zell Arlington County Natural Resources Specialist (recently retired)
