Guilford Courthouse National Military Park is an urban park with 250 acres of forest, visitor trails, streams and rivers, and visitor areas. Maintenance Volunteers-in-Parks assist Maintenance workers with general maintenance indoors and outdoors, invasive plant management, building split-rail fences, and other tasks that preserve this Revolutionary War battlefield. Maintenance volunteers typically work from Spring through Fall.
It takes a lot of people power to maintain a National Park, especially an urban park that is used by hundreds of local residents a day! The Maintenance Division relies on Volunteers to maintain the trails and the visitor center building. The following are activities that our Volunteers perform to make the park a safe environment!

What to expect as a volunteer:What we hope you will get out of volunteering, is a sense of pride for taking care of your local National Park and restoring the battlefield to its 1781 appearance!
Maintenance Volunteers will work outdoors in different temperatures, interact with a variety of plants and animals (poisonous and nonpoisonous), and speak with visitors about the park as they work. The staff trains volunteers to use tools whether manual or electrical. You may experience heat exhaustion, dehydration, tick bites, encounters with an animal, and any other mild injuries from working outdoors. Expect to get dirty in the field and learn a new skill, or strenghten your current skills.
