Park Day 2010

From the Civil War Preservation Trust:

Volunteers needed for Park Day - April 10, 2010!

"Since 1996, the Civil War Preservation Trust has sponsored Park Day, an annual hands-on preservation event to help Civil War battlefields and historic sites take on maintenance projects large and small. Activities are chosen by each participating site to meet their own particular needs and can range from raking leaves and hauling trash to painting signs and trail building.

This year Park Day will be held on Saturday, April 10, 2010. The nationwide effort is underwritten with a grant from History™, formerly The History Channel, and is recognized by the U.S. Department of the Interior as a “Take Pride in America” event."
