No-one should complain of boredom Saturday, as Fort Belvoir has a lot going on. Whether you’re a sports fan, a child or care about the environment, there is something available for all ages.

The Belvoir Exchange hosts Geoff Fisher, founder of Fisher Boards, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Exchange.

Enjoy fishing? Outdoor Recreation offers TroutFest from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the North Post Outdoor Swimming Pool, 2430 Abbott Road. The event offers pole, bait and unlimited fishing for $10. People who bring their own fishing pole can buy bait for $7. Cash only. Spectators can watch for free.

Little League Baseball has opening-day ceremonies at 10 a.m. Saturday at the 21st Street Baseball Complex.

The KidsFest and TeenFest are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. KidsFest happens at Markham School Age Center, while the TeenFest is at the Youth Center. Both events are free and children can enjoy food, games, prizes, and crafts.

The Mount Vernon-Lee Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Route 1 Cleanup is also this weekend. Those who want to help clean up the local area are asked to participate in the chamber’s Route 1/Jeff Todd Way cleanup from 8:30 to 11 a.m. For information, call Fort Belvoir Public Affairs at 703-805-5001 or the chamber of commerce at 703-360-6925. Volunteers meet at Candlewood Suites, 8847 Richmond Highway, at 8:30 a.m., if you, your friends and family are available to help.

The Woodlawn-Faith United Methodist Church, Fort Belvoir Gospel Service, and local scout troops are hosting a cleanup of Woodlawn Cemetery. The cleanup will be from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. with food provided for volunteers. For more information, contact chaplain Lt. Col. Howard Cantrell, 703-806-4317, howard.f.cantrell.mil@mail.mil.
