C&O Canal Pride Days 2009 Kicks Off on April 18th

With spring fast approaching, it's time to get our favorite national park ready for the visitor season. Join us again for C&O Canal Pride Days, a joint effort between the Trust and the C&O Canal National Historical Park to tackle dozens of much-needed projects in the park. Volunteer activities this year will include painting buildings, repairing and painting picnic tables and grills, cutting back overgrown vegetation, rehabilitating trails, and much more.
This year's kickoff event will be at Great Falls on Saturday, April 18th. Come early to enjoy brief opening remarks from C&O Canal NHP Superintendent Kevin Brandt, light refreshments to jumpstart the day's activities, and a unique opportunity to "Meet a Mule."
We encourage you to join us in completing projects at any or all of these locations throughout the spring:
* Saturday, April 18: Great Falls
* Saturday, April 25: Lander and Brunswick
* Saturday, May 2: Williamsport and Hancock
* Saturday, May 16: Cabin John (Team River Runner project)
