Potomac People: Indigenous Tribes of Eastern Prince William
AboutBefore Europeans came to the area now known as Prince William County, the Doegs inhabited the local region. For Native American Heritage Month, join us as we rediscover the Algonquian Nation during this special Boardwalk tour. Learn how they lived and thrived along the coastal plains of the Potomac and what happened to them after European Settlement.
The group will meet at the Neabsco Creek Boardwalk Parking Lot on Blackburn Road under the picnic shelter. Leashed pets are welcome to join, but not all parts of the hike are accessible for wheelchairs. Space is limited. Guests should wear sunscreen and bug spray, plus bring bottled water. Dress for cold weather.
