History or Educational Activities
After the completion of the service project, park historian, Jim Ogden, will conduct a brief overview of the action that took place at the project site.
Should I bring any tools or supplies?
Volunteers are asked to wear clothing appropriate for the weather and that they don't mind getting dirty. Boots or tennis shoes should be worn as well. The park will provide all necessary tools, including gloves, but if participants want to bring their own pair, they are welcome to do so.
Is there a rain date?
In the instance of inclement weather, Park Day will continue as planned.
Please note
The service project will continue as planned if inclement weather is light. If the weather is severe, the service project will be canceled.
