Single Days of Service
For a single day of service, groups can sign up for one of our scheduled Service Days or plan a day for members to work on a service project.
Stones River National Cemetery Adopt-A-Section
The Stones River National Cemetery includes over 7,000 headstones. Each headstone is a historic marker telling the stories of an individual and the nation for which they fought. If uncared for, the headstones would become unreadable, fall apart, and take pieces of those stories with them. Groups who would like to help us take care of the headstones and preserve the memories of those who served can adopt a section of the cemetery.
Stones River National Battlefield provides the supplies for each task.
How to Adopt a Section
Before a group is assigned a section, at least one group leader must go to an Adopt-A-Section leader training. During the training, leaders will learn how to clean headstones and fill out condition surveys.
Scheduling Work Days
Once a group leader has been trained, groups can work on their section at almost any time. Volunteers should tell park staff when they plan to work at least a week before to allow staff to prepare the supplies.
Scouts who want to complete an Eagle Scout project at Stones River can submit an interest form. The park encourages scouts to visit the battlefield and come up with their own unique project proposals.
