Potomac Stewards — River Center Opening Day
It is one of our favorite times of the year; time to open the River Center at Lock 8 for the season!
Every year from May to October the River Center at Lock 8 is open to the public on weekends. It's a place to learn about our Nation's River, its challenges and successes, ways to take action for clean water, and the history of the Canal and the Lockhouse. Staffed solely by volunteers, the River Center is a unique stop along the C&O Canal towpath.
You can help get the River Center ready for the public by joining Potomac Conservancy at the River Center at Lock 8 on May 7! In addition to sprucing up the historic lockhouse, we'll be working to keep the Potomac free of litter and maintaining trails so this national treasure can remain a great place to bike, hike, paddle, and fish.
