The purpose of CPWToday is to provide informative articles and other information pertaining to the conservation of our natural resources and environment through photos, video as well as words. We hope that with this information our readers will be better informed and more aware of conservation and environmental issues and solutions. We encourage comments and differing fact-based points of view, which will be shared in subsequent issues. We strongly believe that our valuable natural resources and fragile environment are in jeopardy and must be conserved for future generations. We believe that we must all do our part, and we have a better chance of success if we are all informed and make smart decisions.


Although not affiliated with Prince William Conservation Alliance (PWCA), CPWToday supports PWCA’s goals and agenda.



Prince William Conservation Alliance (PWCA) is a nonprofit watershed organization working to preserve, protect and enhance natural resources through stewardship, recreation and education. It identifies and pursues conservation opportunities, working with government agencies, local communities and regional organizations to protect important natural areas. Our stewardship programs create opportunities for individuals to learn more about wildlife and engage in positive activities that improve the quality of local natural areas and communities. All our projects are open for member participation. We invite you to join us!


CPWToday is produced by Protected Places Media (PPM). PPM was founded as a creator and distributor of  video, photography, books, and apps related to exploring, understanding and conserving the natural world and our environment. Its hope is that these works will help efforts to restore and sustain wildlife habitat, conserve natural resources, and protect the environment for future generations.
