Park Day is Next Saturday

Park Day is only one week away! Next Saturday, April 6, please visit a battlefield or historic site in your community to help keep our nation's most-storied places looking their best. It’s a fun and meaningful way to lend a hand and, in many cases, experience the places you helped save at Revolutionary War, War of 1812 and Civil War battlefields.

This year, volunteers of all ages can get out of the house, give back, and honor our history at one of nearly 160 participating sites in 32 states and the District of Columbia. Park Day volunteers will help with projects such as planting flowers, raking leaves and maintaining interpretative signs and walking trails — and participants will receive a commemorative Park Day T-shirt (quantities may be limited). Many sites also offer complimentary tours or history talks after the work is complete, where you can hear about the unique role of their Park Day site in our national story.

As an American Battlefield Trust supporter, you play an invaluable role in protecting these sites. Every day, you are part of the team that is helping to preserve our hallowed grounds. We hope you’ll join volunteers next weekend to beautify these places and share your dedication to the cause. Your effort makes a difference locally and across the country.

Take a look at our participating list of sites and register for an event near you.
