       Where: Sandy Point State Park, East Beach Area Pavilion

The Secretarial designations will recognize the significance of the four rivers-the Susquehanna, Chester, Upper Nanticoke and Upper James Rivers-to 17th century Indian cultures and Native American trade routes. These connecting river trails are historic components of the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail and will provide a living link to the time John Smith explored these waters.

Please help us celebrate an action that will support tourism, river conservation, recreation, and education about a truly significant time in American history.

 

Please RSVP to DOI_Events@ios.doi.gov. We hope you can join us.
