Saturday, May 4, is "I Love My Park Day" at the site. If you or someone you know has a green thumb, we could use your help with a light gardening project beginning at 10:00 AM. A special bonus project will begin afterward to repair the Tory Fort. Snacks and a free t-shirt will be provided! Registration is still open.

If you would like to volunteer regularly at the battlefield, we are always in need of part time docents. Anyone who is interested can e-mail David Pitlyk.
