Time for Hands-On Preservation with Park Day 2007
The Civil War Preservation Trust and the History Channel are once again
sponsoring our 11th Annual Park Day! On Saturday, April 7, 2007, volunteers
throughout the country will work together to clean and repair the grounds at
Civil War sites. Last year, approximately 4,000 volunteers played a vital
role in sustaining these parks, providing more than 12,000 hours of service.
Helping hands are needed everywhere for a wide variety of short and long term
projects, providing interesting and rewarding volunteer opportunities for
individuals, couples, schools, families, corporations, citizen groups and
organizations. Clubs and organizations can help with specific park
improvements: trail renovation, tree planting, stream restoration, litter
repairs and more. The event is also perfect for Scout troop service projects
or corporate team-building efforts.
Without the help of volunteers, trash accumulates in these natural areas,
harming wildlife, polluting lakes and rivers, and detracting from the beauty
your community. This event is a fun and effective way to improve the natural
environment in your local community. Thanks to your donated time and skills,
your favorite state park can see improvements now instead of sometime in the
At each site, volunteers will get a free t-shirt and have the opportunity to
hear historians tell them about the land they are helping to preserve. Plan
join fellow preservationists on Saturday, April 7, 2007 at a site near you
for a day of history and hard work.
