C&O Canal Hopes to Land Some Centennial Funding
As the National Park Centennial Initiative moves forward, it definitely will be interesting to see how many projects arise and how decisions are made to fund them.
Already superintendents and friends groups throughout the nation are growing optimistic -- perhaps overly so -- about the potential impact of the initiative.
In the Washington, D.C., area, those who support the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park are talking of getting the park off a starvation diet.
Can the initiative, if embraced by Congress and the private sector, cover all the needs that exist across the national park system? Likely not. Just the same, it will be an interesting process to watch.
