Possible reduction in programs & maintenance
- From Hagerstown Herald-Mail :
Officials at Antietam National Battlefield probably will cut back on park ranger-led tours, programs for school students, regular maintenance of monuments and historical buildings and mowing due to the federal budget cuts known as sequestration, the superintendent of the park said.
Also, park officials probably will not extend the hours of operation for the park’s visitor center during the summer this year, said Susan Trail.
The visitor’s center closing time is usually extended from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. during the summer months, Trail said.
Trail said she does not believe the visitor center will be closed due to the cuts.
