Civil War  |  Park Day Volunteer Opportunity

Park Day @ Buffington Island State Memorial Park

Upcoming Event
Saturday, May 13, 2023 @ 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM EDT

56797 OH-124
Unit 508
Portland, OH 45770

Meeting place
We will meet at the memorial park by 10:30 AM EST.
Planned Activities
We will focus on some general cleanup (branches, twigs, trash), and if we have enough volunteers we will scrape the picnic tables in preparation for new paint or sealer. One crew will head over to the old boat landing and work on removing brush and small trees, and pick up trash, at this historic spot where two future presidents trod.
Should I bring any tools or supplies?
Scrapers, pruners, brush cutters, chainsaws...anything suitable for yard work. Bring water and snacks. Gloves are helpful, and please dress for the weather.
Is there a rain date?
In the instance of inclement weather, Park Day will continue as planned.
Please note
As this is a volunteer event please work at your own pace! Take breaks as needed, chat with others, enjoy the day and know that you are helping to make a difference. The "bathrooms" are privies with no running water. We hope to be able to access the community center just up the road for restrooms.
