historic sites in 24 states to benefit from a volunteer effort
Saturday, April 1, from 9 a.m. until noon. The Civil War
Preservation Trust is recruiting volunteers to help clean and
restore historic battlefields, cemeteries and shrines.
> The one-day effort is being called Park Day. Volunteers are
needed to clean up trails and stream banks, remove cedar seedlings
and assist with other restoration projects. Battlefield staff will
provide any needed equipment.
> Volunteers are asked to dress for the weather, bring a water
bottle and gloves, and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Volunteers will
meet at the battlefield Visitor Center. In the event of bad
weather, the effort will be Saturday, April 8.
