Park Day is an annual hands-on preservation event created by the Civil War Preservation Trust to assist local groups with the maintenance of Civil War sites. Starting at 10 a.m., volunteers will gather at the Visitor Center where they will be assigned to a project. This year’s projects include: constructing a foot bridge; installing a historic tablet; cutting and clearing exotic privet; building a section of worm fence; and picking up litter. In exchange for their hard work, volunteers will receive a t-shirt provided by CWPT and the History Channel.

At 2 p.m., all Park Day participants are invited to join Park Ranger Rebecca Karcher for a car-caravan tour of the Chickamauga Battlefield.

The Friends of the Park are leading the effort to recruit volunteers for the Park Day event. For more information, please contact the Friends Info Line at (423) 624-6914 and leave your name and phone number or visit their web site at
