Volunteer! Wildlife Garden at Merrimac Farm WMA

RSVP appreciated to alliance@pwconserve.org, 703.490.5200

Thanks to volunteer support, we created an area at Merrimac Farm WMA where people and the environment can come together as one. It’s a great area to watch wildlife, learn about native plants and pollinators, and get ideas for your own backyard.

We need help to keep nonnative invasive in check to maintain high quality habitat. Even if you can come just once, your help makes a big difference! Wear long pants, sturdy shoes, and long socks. Read more about Merrimac Farm Wildlife Management Area HERE.

Prince William is unique within the Northern Virginia region, from the Potomac River shoreline to Bull Run Mountain. It’s time to take advantage of our assets.

Join PWCA and Tom Eitler, Senior Vice President of the Urban Land Institute, for a discussion on how new development could redefine Prince William County’s image to attract and retain talent as a means to compete in the Washington DC region, supporting our vision to create healthy sustainable communities.

Understanding the Land Economics of the Rural Area

Prince William County should consider exploring what the current and future demand is for agriculturally-related uses and limited business uses in the rural area. Understanding the socioeconomic trends that are affecting an area can help localities identify the potential for future land uses. Prince William County has 80,000 acres designated for rural uses. Mr. Eitler will discuss how the County may better understand and leverage the opportunities available in the Rural Area.

Compact Suburban Development

Prince William development area includes tens of thousands of acres of both vacant land and land that can be revitalized or redeveloped in the Development Area. This land will provide the County with all what it needs to meets its long-term residential and economic development goals

However, recent new residential projects in Prince William are resulting in low-density sprawl and 80s-style suburban development that is detrimental to the County’s ability to attract and retain talent. The millennial and Z generations are not interested in locating in humdrum suburban areas and Prince William runs the risk that these important cohorts will not be attracted to the county.

Neabsco Regional Park Grand Opening

Volunteers are needed to hand out water and cookies to people who are attending the Grand Opening/Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at Neabsco Regional Park on June 1 at 10 AM. The festivities will be going till 4 PM.
