In 2000, HAL sponsored a Reservoir Day, bringing together all of the reservoir communities in a day of games and education.
Future events of this type are being considered.
In the summer of 2001 HAL sponsored a new summer nature camp at both
Brandermill and Woodlake, with financial help from community businesses. Based on the very positive response from the campers
and their parents, HAL will sponsor this camp again this
year (see more details elsewhere on this page and "Summer Camp Photos"
In March of 2002, HAL and Friends of the Chesterfield Riverfronts co-sponsored two
symposiums, one dealing with pest control and the second one on native plants
HAL is actively working with the Planning Department for Chesterfield County to revise
the Upper Swift Creek Plan. The results of this effort should be realized later this year. HAL is also working with
the Water Quality group for the county to establish improved techniques for minimizing erosion from construction
sites. Examples of this work is shown elsewhere on this website
