Fort Knox seeking Park Day volunteers

PROSPECT — On Saturday, April 21, from 10 a.m. until noon, volunteers are needed to team up with the Friends of Fort Knox and the Civil War Preservation Trust to help clean the Civil War era state historic site.

Park Day, now in its 15th year, 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.

Participants gather at the sites to help with activities that range from trash removal to trail building. In exchange for their work, volunteers receive t-shirts and have an opportunity to learn about the historic site they are helping to clean.

Volunteers are needed to sweep, rake and ready Fort Knox for its opening on May 1. Helpers are asked to bring rakes, shovels, wheelbarrows, leaf blowers, tarps and work gloves. Participants should plan on arriving at 10 and helping until noontime.
