Stewardship Opportunities for Corporations and Organizations

Sign-Up to Volunteer with the C&O Canal Trust

Looking for a service project for your business, corporate employer or organization where you can make a real impact? Join us along the C&O Canal and show us your Canal Pride during our 12th anniversary year!

Help us tackle work essential to preserving and beautifying the Park: campground and trail improvements, historic preservation efforts, invasive plant and trash removal, planting trees and flowers, and more.

Each year, the C&O Canal Trust organizes and hosts Canal Pride community service projects in the C&O Canal National Historical Park. Canal Pride projects are a great opportunity for your employees to help the community, while bonding and enjoying time in the great outdoors. We will work with you to find a date, location, and project for your group, to be planned and led by C&O Canal Trust staff or a trained leader. The Trust will provide all supplies, tools, and protective gear for each project and will coordinate site selection, permitting, logistics, and trash removal. A typical event lasts approximately 3 hours.
