The Accokeek Foundation cultivates passion for the natural and cultural heritage of Piscataway Park and commitment to sustainability.

The Accokeek Foundation was founded in 1957 as one of the first land trusts, blazing new trails in preservation through a public/private partnership that led to the creation of Piscataway Park, a nearly 5,000-acre national park on the Maryland shore of the Potomac River. Through a cooperative agreement with the National Park Service, the Accokeek Foundation cares for two hundred acres of the park, providing educational programs and visitor services. This working landscape includes the National Colonial Farm, Ecosystem Farm, and heritage breed livestock, as well as nature trails, gardens, a fishing pier, and a boat dock (with kayak launch). In addition, this is the sacred homeland of the Piscataway people, and its significance as an indigenous cultural landscape makes it a key site on several national trails.

Through programs in agriculture, conservation, and history, the Accokeek Foundation serves tens of thousands of school children and visitors every year. Join us in preserving the culture, history, and beauty of this Potomac River landscape and cultivating a new generation of stewards.
