Park Day

Join us for Park Day on Saturday, April 10, from 9:00 am – noon!

This spring cleaning of the battlefield will take place RAIN OR SHINE!

You’ll be a part of an annual event, sponsored by the American Battlefield Trust (ABT), that supports historic preservation through community involvement in restoration and maintenance projects.

Park Day projects at Cedar Mountain Battlefield include trail maintenance, cleaning up the cannons and battlefield signage, cleaning the trails and cemeteries of winter debris, litter removal along the battlefield frontage on General Winder Road, weeding and raking around the meeting house, and more.

All projects will be outdoors. For everyone’s safety, we ask that participants please have masks and that participants not in the same household unit please maintain 6 feet of social distance.

We recommend that volunteers bring their own gloves and garden tools.

In appreciation of volunteers’ efforts, there will be a hotdog bbq at noon and ABT water bottles for participants to take home.

Please let us know you’re coming by sending an rsvp to info@friendsofcedarmountain.org – this will help us develop a “plan of attack” for the day! 

Arriving a few minutes before 9 am will allow projects to get started promptly.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 10th!
