About the event
BGHRVA will be co-leading a hike with Pocahontas State Park to explore the educational hike to Group Camp 7. This portion of the park was once segreated to African-Americans, and we are so excited to uncover and witness history during this hike. The trek will be about 5 miles with little to no elevation , but we will be stopping throughout the hike to discuss artifacts.
After the hike please join BGHRVA + Pocahantas State Park staff at the Welcome Center for story-telling, food, vendors and fun for the whole family from 11 am-3 p.m.
We are so excited to celebrate our freedom with you on Juneteenth!!
