2018 Latino Conservation Week Events

July 20, 2017

Niños—Welcome to Your Park!

Event Description:

The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park at Great Falls in Potomac, Maryland will host a day full of events that will encourage children to connect to the nature of the C&O Canal. From 11:00am to 4:15pm, children and their families will have the chance to play historically accurate games from the nineteenth century, receive activity packets and Junior Ranger books, have a picnic in the park, watch as a nineteenth century replica excursion boat passes through a working lock along the canal, take part in a scavenger hunt, and shadow one of our Park Rangers! Visitors should mention that they are participating in Latino Conservation Week upon entering the park. Visitors should also consider wearing comfortable shoes and bring food and water for the picnic. The C&O Canal National Historical Park is a trash free park so we ask that visitors keep this in mind and bring bags for their trash.
