Over the course of two days, May 19-20, 2017, the National Park Service, the Friends of Flight 93, and the National Park Foundation will continue a major reforestation effort that will eventually result in large areas of new forest at the memorial.

Find out more about volunteering this year's effort - Registration begins soon and continues until all slots are full. Please note spaces fill very quickly. Please check back for registration start date.

2012: 500+ volunteers planted 13,000 seedlings across 20 acres.

2013: 500+ volunteers planted 15,500 seedlings across 23 acres.
2014: 500+ volunteers planted 19,500 seedlings across 30 acres.
2015: 500+ volunteers planted 22,000 seedlings across 32 acres

These trees, which are a mixture of several native species, will form an essential windbreak to protect trees planted in the nearby Memorial Groves. Much of what is now the memorial is a former surface coal mine and this effort will also help re-establish woodland wildlife habitats and to cultivate a living memorial.
