2016 Canal Pride Days

Do you take pride in your neighborhood National Park, the C&O Canal? Show it off by volunteering for a day of restoration, revitalization, and fun during one of the Canal Trust’s Canal Pride days!


Our public Canal Pride Days are aways scheduled in April and May, and are over for 2016. Be sure to check back in 2017 to sign up!

Thanks to all who volunteered in 2016 — we have over 300 people come to Great Falls, Williamsport, Hancock, and Lock 75 to help us clean up the Park for spring!

If you would like to schedule a Canal Pride volunteer clean-up event with your corporation or private group, contact Director of Programs and Partnerships Becky Curtis at curtis@canaltrust.org or 301-745-8888.


Become a Canal Pride Steward or Sponsor

We have two opportunities for corporations to get involved in Canal Pride:

Become a Sponsor: Your Canal Pride Sponsorship will help cover expenses needed to keep our Park clean and cared for – items like paint, dumpsters, rakes, trash bags, and pruners to aid our volunteers in their efforts. Download the information sheet here.

Host your own Canal Pride event and become a Steward: You can choose a date and a location along the Canal for your own Canal Pride event. Bring your employees out for a team-building experience as a way to give back to the community. Download the information sheet here.

Thank you to our 2016 Canal Pride Sponsors!
