Rafting season is upon us…and we need lock tenders!

Interested in becoming part of living history?  Join us for lock-tender training!  Operate canal locks on weekends (in April & May) to aid in passage of whitewater rafts as part of LP&CT’s Concord River whitewater rafting program. Learn how to close locks, open wickets to raise water level and send rafts through to next chamber.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, this training is required. Please contact us if you’re interested but cannot attend.
