This park is supported by Maryland’s Veterans Conservation Corps (VCC), a program modeled after the Maryland Conservation Corps. The Veterans Conservation Corps works with the Maryland Park Service and the Department of Natural Resources on conservation projects in areas such as recreation enhancement, park operations, wetland restoration, facility improvements and trail maintenance and construction.

Corps members are trained in relevant, enriching and marketable skills such as Emergency Medical Responder, chain saw safety, hazardous tree removal, Search and Rescue, trail construction, environmental education/interpretation and invasive species removal.

Maryland's Veterans Conservation Corps program helps empower veterans during their transition from military service to civilian life by leveraging their unique background and service ethic with the therapeutic value of the outdoors and professional skills development, while they address pressing conservation needs on public lands.
