Volunteers from throughout Kentucky are needed to team with the Civil War Trust to help clean and restore 10 Civil War sites in the state. The annual event — dubbed Park Day — is part of a nationwide effort that includes more than 100 historic sites in 25 states.
Volunteers are encouraged to contact the individual sites. Activities may range from raking leaves and hauling trash to painting signs and planting trees. In exchange for their work, volunteers will receive T-shirts and have an opportunity to hear a local historian describe the significance of the site.
Park Day is scheduled for Saturday. The 10 Kentucky sites are:
