C & O Canal Pride Days-volunteer! (Allegany County)
About this event :
Canal Pride is the Trust’s signature volunteer program that rallies more than 1,000 volunteers annually to perform a range of preservation and beautification projects in the Park. Along with supporting National Park Service efforts to maintain and improve Park amenities, Canal Pride engages local communities in shared stewardship of this treasured recreational, natural, and historical resource. The Trust also facilitates corporate volunteer team-building days and provides volunteer opportunities for faith-based groups and other organizations. In 2017, the Trust launched its Canal For All outreach to Latino and African American communities to diversify participation in our Canal Pride and Canal Quarters programs and to introduce youth from these communities to the extraordinary environmental resources of the C&O Canal National Historical Park.
