Community Cleanup at Fletcher’s Boathouse

South East Chapter

October 8, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

During these unprecedented COVID-19 times, we hope that everyone is safe and healthy. Join us outdoors in person to clean up trash at the historical Fletcher’s Boathouse! The nearby Abner Cloud House is the oldest building on the canal, dating back to 1802. Folks can enjoy walking down the trails and cleaning up any trash along the C&O canal or near the boathouse area. We will adhere to COVID-19 guidelines with social distancing. Details will follow after your registration.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of our community service to the region!
Fletcher’s Boathouse has been in this location since the 1850s and is renowned as a fishing and recreational area. After 145 years of business, the fourth generation of the Fletcher family retired in 2004 and Guest Services Incorporated, a National Park Service concessionaire, assumed responsibility for the operation of the concessions. The area surrounding the boat house was then officially named Fletcher’s Cove, though most people still call it Fletcher’s Boat House.

While many fishing enthusiasts come to Fletcher’s Cove for the spring run of shad, perch, and rockfish, many other people come to kayak the Potomac River, and bike, hike, and run the C & O Canal and other trails along the river all year round. Fletcher’s Boathouse rents rowboats, canoes, kayaks, bikes, and paddle boards.
