Park Day cancelled due to weather predictions.

Make-up TBD

(Culpeper, Va.) – The Friends of Cedar Mountain will team up with local volunteers to aid in the maintenance and restoration of the Cedar Mountain battlefield in Culpeper County, Virginia as part of Park Day, a nationwide effort sponsored by the Civil War Trust that includes more than 130 historic sites in 30 states. Thousands of volunteers across the country will participate as Park Day celebrates over 20 successful years on Saturday, April 7, 2018.

About 40 people are expected at the Culpeper County Park Day events. Activities at Cedar Mountain begin at 8:30 a.m. and include interpretive trail clearing, brush removal, trash pickup, building or repairing fences, and maintenance of the Headquarters House.

They are asked to bring rakes, shovels, loppers, and PERSONAL GLOVES. A pickup would be handy for transporting things to and from different parts of the site.

“Park Day is one of our favorite — not to mention one of the most family-friendly — events of the year,” said Diane Logan, President of the Friends of Cedar Mountain Battlefield. “We are grateful to the volunteers of all ages who choose to spend some time outdoors with us in helping to protect Culpeper’s historic treasures.”

Volunteers will receive T-shirts and light refreshments. To sign up for Park Day event in Culpeper, contact Diane Logan with the Friends of Cedar Mountain Battlefield by Email or by phone at 540 727-8849.
