Pine Rockland Working Group (PRWG)
The mission of the Pine Rockland Working Group (PRWG) is to maintain and restore the pine rockland natural community, its associated species, and the natural processes, most notably fire, upon which they all depend.
The Pine Rockland Working Group is an informal collection of individuals representing nongovernmental organizations; local, state, and national government agencies from Florida, the Bahamas, and Turks and Caicos Islands; and private landowners who share an interest in the management and conservation of pine rocklands.
