March 29 Park Day 2003 (Saturday)
Antietam National Battlefield is calling for volunteers to
participate in Park Day, an annual hands-on preservation
event created by the Civil War Preservation Trust (CWPT).
The purpose of Park Day is to help local communities
maintain and restore their Civil War-related battlefields,
cemeteries, and shrines. Volunteers interested in donating
their time and talents at Antietam National Battlefield are
encouraged to meet at the Visitor Center at 9:00 A.M.
This year's projects will consist of planting trees in the
historic North Woods and planting apple trees in the
historic Piper Orchard. In exchange for their hard work,
volunteers will receive t-shirts and have an opportunity to
learn about the significance of the sites. For more
information about Park Day 2003 at Antietam National
Battlefield, contact either Debbie Cohen or Ed Wenschhof
