PWCA protects Prince William Countys natural resources, from tidal wetlands along the Potomac River to Bull Run Mountain, while also advocating for smart growth. The key is empowering everyday citizens in this fast-growing suburb to explore, enjoy, and become active stewards of their outdoor community. Tours, talks, festivals, and citizen science programs educate families about local environmental assets and their values. Native plant restoration projects and tree giveaways encourage people to improve wildlife habitats and reclaim the natural health of their suburban backyards. Land use workshops inspire residents actively to participate in planning and development decisions that affect their community: the work has resulted, among other things, in the creation of 40 miles of scenic byways. And PWCAs advocacy work has resulted in more bike lanes, green spaces, protected public lands and a higher quality of life.
