Eastern National

Eastern National is the Prince William Forest Park's cooperating associations. They operate the store in the park visitor center to broaden the public's understanding of the park and its stories. Eastern National donates a portion of the store proceeds to visitor services and interpretation projects.

For example, Eastern National donated over $2,000 in June of 2008 for the park's 1930s Heritage Days event. The money allowed the world-renowned blues masters, Cephas & Wiggens, to highlight the event. Eastern National paid for the first ever book published in Prince William Forest Park, released in spring of 2009.

Potomac Appalachian Trail Club

The Potomac Appalachian Trail Club (PATC) is a volunteer-based organization, headquartered in Vienna, Virginia. The PATC was founded in 1927 by the visionaries who planned and built the Appalachian Trail. The club now manages more than 1,200 miles of hiking trails in the Mid-Atlantic region, along with cabins, shelters, and hundreds of acres of conserved land. More than 20 volunteers work with PATC in Prince William Forest Park to maintain our 37 miles of trails, construct trail bridges and new trails, and aid the park on various trail projects.
