We volunteer because we care

We volunteer because we think Prince William is a great place to live and we care about the future of our community. Volunteering is also a great way to meet new people who share common interests and start creating your own sense of community.

Next Saturday, August 2, we’ll be working on household repairs and cleaning at Merrimac Farm, beginning at 9:00 a.m. There’s lots to do for people with handyman skills and lots to do for the rest of us too.

On Saturday, August 23, at 9:00 a.m. we’ll be at Dove’s Landing with the County’s Historic Preservation Division hosting an easy hike through this fabulous property.

In September the first Virginia Master Naturalist Program will open at Merrimac Farm.  This is a great opportunity for people to learn more about nature close to home. It also should be lots of fun, with opportunities to catch dragonflies, trap small mammals, bird local wetlands, tour stream restoration projects and discover forest habitats.  People who complete the program become Certified Master Naturalists. Applications are now being accepted for the September program, click here for more information.

These are great ways to start getting more involved in your community. Please give us a call at 703.499.4954 or email alliance@pwconserve.org if you have questions or ideas for new activities!
