- Personal protective equipment (PPE) is highly encouraged for all staff and volunteers while volunteering in the Park.
- Keeping a social distance of at least 6 feet is required for participants not living in the same household.
- Masks are required on federal lands when social distancing cannot be maintained.
- Anyone not feeling well should not enter the Park or participate in any Park-related programs.
- Participants are recommended to supply their own gloves (we will have gloves available), close-toed shoes, water bottles and water*, snacks/food (as needed). Tools such as garbage bags, rakes, shovels, etc. will be provided by the C&O Canal Trust.
