River Center Opening Day
- River Center at Lock 8 7906 Riverside Drive Cabin John, MD, 20818 United States (map)
It is one of our favorite times of the year; time to open the River Center at Lock 8 for the season!
Join us at the River Center at Lock 8 on May 6th for Opening Day! We'll have activities for all ages — games, art projects, interpretive nature walks, and a lot of opportunities to learn about about how to protect the Potomac River! While you're here, talk to Potomac Conservancy staff and River Center Guides about how you can engage in local action and stewardship to advocate for clean water and land preservation.
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.
