Each Land and River Series panel discussion will be immediately followed by an in-depth conversation about interpretation. The Accokeek Foundation’s interpretation focuses on the 200-acre site that we steward in Piscataway Park on the Potomac River. We are looking for community input as we create innovative programming designed to serve diverse audiences and put visitors at the center of experiences in Piscataway Park. After the panel, we encourage all interested to join us in an open conversation. The group will talk about the most important stories to tell, determine which overarching concepts best represent local narratives, and begin to identify interpretive themes. All are welcome to share their ideas and opinions.
