Park Day

Volunteer at sites nationwide

Join us to maintain parks nationwide!

This annual event brings history enthusiasts together in an effort to help keep our nation’s heritage not only preserved, but pristine.

Since 1996, the Civil War Trust has sponsored Park Day, an annual hands-on preservation event to help Civil War — and now Revolutionary War — battlefields and historic sites take on maintenance projects large and small. Activities are chosen by each participating site to meet their own particular needs and can range from raking leaves and hauling trash to painting signs and trail buildings. 

Park Day 2016 Was a Success!

Thanks to the over 6,000 volunteers for participating at 130 sites across the country on April 2, 2016! Check out some highlights and news coverage of the event below:
