C&O Canal Update – March 10

Hello Level Walkers,

Here’s an update from the park.

Thanks, Steve

Dear Volunteers, 
Spring is ahead of us and the park is getting busier. Staff would like to take this opportunity to remind you that, while our volunteer team is very knowledgeable, we do not expect our volunteers to know everything under the sun. If you are volunteering in the park and a visitor asks you a lot of questions you do not have the answer to about a specific topic, please feel free to refer them to either the park’s main phone line (301-739-4200) or to the park information email (choh_information@nps.gov). If you have questions, please always feel free to reach out to your program supervisor.
It is time to submit photos for the 2022 C&O Canal calendar! Photos of all parts of the park, through all four seasons will be included in the calendar. So if you have photos of historic structures, flora/fauna, visitors, volunteers, or just about anything else in the park, please submit them! 
Once again this year, we ask that you submit your photos via Google Drive tochohvip@gmail.com. To do this, compose an email and hover your mouse over the plus sign next to the attachments, click on the drive icon (resembles recycling logo), upload the photos you would like to share, and send to chohvip@gmail.com. If you have any issues with this, please feel free to attach photos to a standard email sent to the same email address. 
Please label your photo files with the location and name of photographer.  – For example: BigSlackwater_Jane_Doe. 
The deadline for submission is Friday, May 7th, 2021. If your photograph is selected, you will be contacted and credited in the calendar.
