What's Happening at the Canal? New Group Dedicated to Restoring the C&O.

For too many years, the canal that is an integral part of the Georgetown landscape has been neglected. New nonprofit organization Georgetown Heritage is committed to revitalizing and repairing the canal. CAG is hosting a panel discussion at its next community meeting on April 19 to hear about this new initiative.  Everyone is welcome.

The panel will include Kevin Brandt, Superintendent of the C&O National Historic Park; Maggie Downing, Destination Manager of the Georgetown Business Improvement District; and Terrie Rouse, Executive Director of Georgetown Heritage, and will be introduced by Georgetown Heritage President Pamla Moore and Georgetown BID CEO Joe Sternlieb.

Though Georgetown Heritage is in many ways a startup, it has a clear mission: to work in cooperation with the community, the National Park Service, and other organizations and agencies to fund projects and programs that will revitalize, preserve, interpret, and enhance the natural and cultural resources of the C&O National Canal Historic Park in Georgetown.
