On Saturday, September 27, Shiloh National Military Park will be participating in the annual National Public Lands Day (NPLD). We are seeking volunteers to work with rangers from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm in clearing brush and vegetation from areas on the battlefield to restore open fields to their wartime appearance.
NPLD is our nation's single largest volunteer day for our public lands. Shiloh has been proud to participate and support NPLD since 2007.
Any groups or individuals interested in volunteering should call the park Visitor Center at 731-689-5696 to register. We will be working with briers, so work gloves and long sleeves are recommended as is insect repellent. All volunteers will receive a free pass to any public land and a commemorative certificate.
