If you agree with Think Globally and Act Locally, then be sure to support local conservation organizations. In Prince William, Manassas, and Manassas Park, the best return on your investment is to join and contribute to the Prince William Conservation Alliance.
The Prince William Conservation Alliance has local roots, local members, and local credibility, and is not affiliated with the government.
We can quickly identify and respond to threats, such as VDOT's last-minute plan to add a huge parking lot within the boundaries of the Rural Area after the public hearings on I-66 improvements were completed. We are the organization that mobilized the public response that saved the farm of Jeannie and Carl Heflin.
Following this success, we led the effort to designate 39.4 miles of roads within the Rural Crescent as Virginia Scenic Byways to showcase our rural beauty. Just two weeks ago, the Commonwealth Transportation Board voted to approve the Virginia’s Scenic Byway designation for all proposed roads. Look for a ribbon cutting in early spring!
Thanks to your support, the Prince William Conservation Alliance has staying power. Eight years ago, we began the successful campaign to garner support for creating a passive use county park at Dove’s Landing, which is now open to the public.
We recognize the long term values of the nearly one mile of Occoquan River shoreline, wetlands, and riparian forest at Dove's Landing. We are continuing our campaign to secure a conservation easement to ensure this special park is permanently protected from future threats, including conversion to a new school site, bus depot, or other development.
We partner with regional, state, and national organizations, but as a local organization, we depend upon your local support. Your tax deductible gift enables us to be the strong, independent voice needed to ensure the preservation of high quality natural resources and protects healthy communities county wide.
We can only succeed with your support. Please make a generous year-end gift today by donating online here. Thank you so much.
