Volunteer for CWT's Park Day!
Some of the big battlefields will be participating, such as Cedar Creek, Antietam and Gettysburg but there are a lot of smaller sites participating too. Pennsylvania only has two participating sites but Virginia and Tennessee have a lot participating.
This really is a great time to help out your favorite site, especially since many sites are significantly underfunded. Each site has different jobs to be done from landscaping and cleaning to locating and identifying graves.
A lot of visitors really does take its toll on historic sites. The sites really do appreciate having a lot of extra hands to do work that needs to be done. You can bring tons of friends and make a really fun day of it.
Anyone planning on participating?
