A great way to show your appreciation for the C&O Canal National Historical Park — and help preserve it for future generations — is to become a Canal Pride volunteer. Volunteers of all ages come together to complete a variety of projects, including campground and picnic area improvements, towpath and trail repairs, building maintenance and historic preservation, invasive plant and trash removal, native landscaping, and more.
