Mark your calendars! The second week of June is Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week. Watch for special events around the region. If you cannot attend an event, take time to pick up litter in your neighborhood to keep it from entering our streams and eventually the Chesapeake Bay.
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
