Due to the government shutdown, Piscataway Park will be closed to the public. The gates for the site and facilities managed by the Accokeek Foundation will be locked as long as the federal shutdown continues. Until further notice, it will not be permissible for the public to enter national park land. This includes access to the water and fishing pier, nature trails, Visitor Center, Education Center, National Colonial Farm, and the Ecosystem Farm. Essential personnel will carry on regular operations to ensure safety to the animals and site security.
All programs, scheduled tours, and volunteers events during the period of closure will be cancelled.
Special arrangements have been made the farm’s CSA pickup. Pickups will be available during its regular time on Tuesday and Friday (if necessary) at the Moyaone Commons located at 2311 Bryan Point Road.
The Accokeek Foundation is deeply disappointed to be unable to serve the public at Piscataway Park during this time, and we look forward to resuming normal operations soon. If you have questions about the status of closures or the effect of closures on the Accokeek Foundation, please contact the Foundation’s communications office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
