Prince William is a special county, and during our fundraiser party Spring is for Hope is celebrating places and people that make our home what it is. Local artists will dazzle us with their talents which weave through stories of places worth protecting from east to west. Meet the people who are working to protect the resources that are the foundation of our community while enjoying music, good company, and more.

PWCA has had many successes over the years, from the acquisition of Merrimac Farm WMA and restoring wildlife habitat at Silver Lake to establishing Prince William's first Virginia Scenic Byways. It's been a team effort; you are our heroes and make us hopeful for the future.
