Celebrate Rescue Reston's 10th Anniversary!

In 2012 we coalesced around a common vision and purpose and have moved forward with unwavering community support over the past 10 years. We thank you for that!

When Reston’s two golf courses were established, the potential population densities of their areas were shifted elsewhere to preserve the open space as “golf course.” Developers are trying to circumvent the established densities to build more and more.

Reston cannot let them get away with this. Green space must be there for our children’s children’s children…

Rescue Reston is in its 10th year and stronger than ever thanks to actions taken by YOU.

"The Reston National Golf Course area should remain as open space forever." - Robert Simon, Founder of Reston, August 14, 2015
