Call to volunteers for Park Day 2023 at Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park
Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park and Friends of the Wilderness Battlefield will be hosting a Park Day volunteer event on April 15, 2023, dedicated to cleaning and repairing our park resources.
All members of the public are invited to join us for this day of service. Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up ahead of time by visiting the Park Day application on Volunteer.gov.
Volunteers attending Park Day should meet at Ellwood Manor, located at 36380 Constitution Hwy, Locust Grove, VA 22508, by 9 am. Park Day volunteers will help with one of two projects: trash collection along the Chancellorsville Battlefield tour stops or helping correct and paint bollards and picnic tables at a picnic area on the Wilderness Battlefield. Typically, projects wrap up around noon.
We recommend that volunteers wear sturdy shoes, long pants, and long sleeve shirts. All volunteers will be given proper training and equipment. No personal equipment from home is needed.
