Cub Scouts prepare to pick up trash in the park.
If you are looking for a scout or volunteer project Appomattox Court House NHP has many opportunities. Scouts can gain a badge by doing the History Trail education activity that includes answering questions and pick up trash. In addition to picking up trash on the 4 1/2 mile History Trail, they can help paint and fix fences or with a landscaping project. For more information see our Scout Program page or contact Alyssa Holland, Volunteer Coordinator, at 434-352-8987 ex. 234 or e-mail us.
