There is hope if people will begin to awaken that spiritual part of themselves that heartfelt knowledge that we are caretakers of this planet. ~Brooke Medicine Eagle
To truly see improvement, every citizen of the Prince William County needs to commit and participate as caretakers of our part of this planet. We hope you will join us in our effort to bring the community together.
When one tugs at a single thing in nature he finds it attached to the rest of the world. ~John Muir
As we begin to nurture and protect one aspect of our natural world it helps to improve other parts of the environment. Improvements continue to build upon one another until we realize a real benefit to our community and the planet.
