Join a ranger or National Park Service volunteer for a 75 minute walk on Theodore Roosevelt Island on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. from May through October. You will learn about the conservation legacy of the 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt. You will also learn of the 1st United States Colored Troops who trained on the island during the Civil War and the Mason family who owned the island for more than one hundred years. Theodore Roosevelt Island features areas of marsh and swamp that can be seen from a boardwalk.
