Join the Maryland Outdoor Club in participating with the C&O Canal Trust for the 5th Annual C&O Canal Pride Day! Celebrate Earth Day by helping us kick off Canal Pride Days 2012!

Revitalize the campground at Marsden Tract or lay a new trail way and improve landscaping at the Great Falls Tavern!

Gloves will be provided. Please dress for the weather and be prepared to be dirty! We hope to see you there!
