Help Out a Civil War Site – A ‘Take Pride in America’ Event
We received a media release about the annual Park Day, when people who may not have time to volunteer year-round pitch in to help out at a Civil War park or historic site. The ways you can help are many and varied: painting, repairing fences, cleaning up litter. With budget cutbacks and the economy affecting financial contributions, your help at these sites is especially important.
Since 1996, the Civil War 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. Park Day 2012 will be held on Saturday, March 31, at participating sites. This nationwide effort is recognized by the U.S. Department of the Interior as a "Take Pride in America" event.
