OAK RIDGE, Tennessee: The National Park Service will be holding an information session for anyone interested in volunteering to help with the Manhattan Project National Historical Park in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, on Tuesday, January 26. The session will start at 10 a.m. (ET) and will be held in the Midtown Community Center located at 102 Robertsville Road in Oak Ridge. The meeting will be over before noon and will provide information on some of the areas in which help is most critically needed during this first year of the park’s operation. This meeting was originally scheduled for January 21 and was changed due to weather conditions.

For more information on becoming a National Park Service volunteer at the Manhattan Project Oak Ridge site, please call Effie Houston at (423) 569-9778 or email her at Effie_Houston@nps.gov. 

A national park ranger is now staffing a desk located at the American Museum of Science and Energy at 300 S. Tulane Avenue Oak Ridge, Tennessee, every Saturday. The park service plans to provide seven day a week coverage within the next few months.
