For 100 years, the National Park Service has preserved America’s special places “for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.” Celebrate its second century with the Find Your Park GeoTour that launched April 2016 and explore these geocaches placed for you by National Park Service Rangers and their partners.
This cache was placed for the Accokeek Foundation to highlight the trails in this park in association with the Maryland Geocaching Society.
For more than 50 years, the Accokeek Foundation has stewarded 200 acres of Piscataway Park in Accokeek, Maryland, on the shore of the Potomac River. Founded protect the view from George Washington's Mount Vernon across the Potomac River, the Accokeek Foundation was one of the nation's first land trusts, and continues land conservation efforts today to ensure continued protection of the viewshed and the working landscapes in Prince George's County, Maryland.
Through a partnership with the National Park Service, the Foundation uses Piscataway Park to interpret agriculture and environmental stewardship, through time. The National Colonial Farm, a well known historic farm museum established in 1958, demonstrates Maryland agriculture during the 18th century, and has been the backdrop for hundreds of school tours each year. The Ecosystem Farm, a certified organic 8-acre farm, teaches about sustainable food production using innovative growing techniques. It is the goal of the farm to demonstrate a compelling variety of possibilities that inspire people to want to grow while creating a thriving engaged community.
