Civil War Trust Park Day at Fort Fisher

Event Description

As part of Civil War Trust Park Day, volunteers of all ages are needed Saturday, April 7, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon to help beautify and preserve Fort Fisher, the largest earthen fortification in the Confederacy, Now in its 21st year, Park Day is an annual hands-on preservation event created by the Civil War Trust to assist with the maintenance of America’s Civil War Sites. Volunteers of all ability levels are welcome and—and encouraged—to participate.

Many activities are appropriate for groups such as scout troops, service clubs, and church youth groups. At noon, all registered volunteers will be treated to lunch provided by the Friends of Fort Fisher, the non-profit group which supports the site, along with its sustaining members.  All Park Day 2018 volunteers are asked to register in advance by April 6, 2018 by calling Assistant Site Manager John Moseley at (910) 251-7342 or by emailing him at john.moseley@ncdcr.gov. In addition to lunch, registered volunteers will receive a free Civil War Trust Park Day t-shirt. Gloves and tools are also supplied.  “Park Day is a fantastic opportunity for our friends and neighbors to make a difference in their community by helping to maintain and preserve our valuable history and one of the most scenic and historically significant places in the nation,” Moseley said. “We truly appreciate all the support we get and encourage everyone to volunteer.”
