Stones River National Battlefield and the Civil War Preservation Trust will celebrate Park Day on Saturday April 5, 2014. We will join parks and volunteers nationwide for a day dedicated to preserving America's Civil War sites.
Volunteers and park employees will work to improve the battlefield landscape at the McFadden Farm site by: removing invasive non historic fences, cutting & treating invasive exotic plants and picking up trash. Registration will begin at 8:30 AM. Volunteers should wear work clothes and bring work gloves.
The National Park Service will provide lunch at 12:30 p.m. The first fifty registered adult participants will receive commemorative t-shirts provided by the Civil War Preservation Trust.
For information on volunteering for the Park Day project, contact Integrated Resources Manager Troy Morris at (615) 893-9501 or e-mail us.
