Current Volunteer Opportunities

Park Day 2018 - Saturday, April 7!
Manassas National Battlefield Park is seeking individuals and groups to assist on Park Day - April 7, 2018. The annual event, sponsored by the Civil War Trust, brings history enthusiasts together for a hands-on preservation event at battlefields around the country. The park will be enlisting volunteer support to tackle a number of maintenance projects, including fence construction, invasive plant control, and various trail projects.

The event will be held, weather permitting, from 8:30 a.m. - 12 p.m. If you would like to volunteer for Park Day, please contact the park's Volunteer Coordinator at 703-361-1339 x1211. Registration is required. We look forward to seeing you on April 7!


Visitor Services
Volunteers work at the Henry Hill Visitor Center information desk, greeting visitors and providing them with an orientation and overview of the park's historical resources and programs. Volunteers are also needed to staff the historic Stone House, a pre-war tavern used as an aide station during both Battles of Manassas.

 

Trail Maintenance

Manassas National Battlefield Park contains more than 40 miles of trails, over half of which are open to horseback riding. The park works closely with two volunteer organizations to perform routine trail maintenance, combat erosion, and address sustainability issues. Hiking trails at the park are maintained with the assistance of the Blue & Gray Trail Crew, and bridle trails are maintained with the assistance of the Battlefield Equestrian Society.
