Parkers Creek Heritage Trail Interpretive Materials
For more than 10,000 years, people have hunted, fished, worked and made their homes around Parkers Creek and Governors Run in Calvert County. Just as their lives and cultures shaped our local heritage, the ruggedness of the terrain and the characteristics of the waterways shaped their lives. The environment and its people leave a mark on each other and are inextricably intertwined. The American Chestnut Land Trust is exploring that relationship in the Parkers Creek Heritage Trail project. The results are being shared through interpretive signage along ACLT’s more than 20 miles of trails and at selected heritage sites, reinforced on this website and in a series of public events. Project research began in 2020 and continues today. The first interpretive materials were shared in December 2021. The offering will expand in significant way during the months that follow.
