The C&O Canal Trust is looking for volunteer Quartermasters to help with its award-winning Canal Quarters program.

At Canal Quarters, park visitors can spend the night in one of six rehabilitated historical lockhouses along the C&O Canal and take a step back in history.

Volunteers in this program will help with minor repairs and maintenance, reset lock codes for new guests, and be the eyes and ears of the Trust. The Trust is especially looking for volunteer Quartermasters at Lockhouse 49 in Clear Spring, and Lockhouse 25 in Poolesville. If interested, contact Josh Whitman or Becky Curtis at canalpridedays@canaltrust.org, or call 301-745-8888, for more details on the program.
