For More Information
Meeting place
Volunteers should meet at 9AM at the project site located at the intersection of Woodland View Circle and Hooker Road in Chattanooga.
Planned Activities
This year, the service project isn’t on park property, but rather in the city of Chattanooga. However, it does have a park connection. We will be working with the city to clear vegetation and debris from one of the original park bridges associated with an approach road that was built around the time of the park’s establishment. The service project area is the route taken by Union General Joseph Hooker’s forces as they marched from Lookout Mountain, into Chattanooga Valley, and toward Missionary Ridge, where Confederates were positioned. Today, the location is off Hooker Road.
History or Educational Activities
Park Historian, Jim Ogden will provide a brief history of the bridge and its significance to the park.
Should I bring any tools or supplies?
Volunteers are asked to wear clothing appropriate for the weather and that they don’t mind getting a little dirty. All tools, including gloves, will be provided, but volunteers are welcome to bring their own gloves if desired. A water bottle is also encouraged.
Is there a rain date?
In the instance of inclement weather, Park Day will be cancelled.
