The grand opening at Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park was at 9:30 AM at the Williamsport Visitor Center. Kids in Parks was awarded Congressional Recognition during the ceremony. We were joined by 4th graders from Willamsport Elementary School for a ribbon-cutting followed by a guided hike. The grand opening at Catoctin Mountain Park was at 2:30 PM at the Camp Round Meadow trailhead. Here we were joined by local 4th graders for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and guided hike. The Manassas National Battlefield TRACK Trail also opened for TRACKing as of April 26th.
