Dates & Times
Type of Event
CHECK-IN Time will begin at 9:30am. Volunteers and park staff will then remove invasive species from 10am-12pm.
In partnership with the American Battlefield Trust, formerly the Civil War Trust, the Civil War Defenses of Washington will once again be hosting Park Day, an annual hands-on preservation event to help Civil War battlefields and historic sites take on maintenance projects large and small.
We have selected Battery Kemble for Park Day 2019. Remnants of the two-gun battery remain in fair condition. Volunteers, with the guidance of National Park Service staff, will remove invasive plant species from the earthworks.
Our aim is to provide visitors will a better visual of the two-gun battery that overlooked Chain Bridge across the Potomac River.
Tools, including gloves and clippers, and water will be provided. Volunteers will receive a free Park Day t-shirt, compliments of the American Battlefield Trust.
Volunteers should wear work boots, pants, and long-sleeve shirts. Sun block is also recommended.
In case of inclement weather, a "Rain Date" is scheduled for April 27, 2019.
