Our staff will be conducting a tour of Fort Delaware for all volunteers that come out to help us out for the day!
Should I bring any tools or supplies?
Any necessary tools will be provided by the park. Volunteers should bring work gloves, lunch/snack food, and a refillable bottle. We will provide drinking water for everyone.
Is there a rain date?
In the instance of inclement weather, Park Day will continue as planned.
Please note
Fort Delaware is on an island, so we will be taking a boat to the site.
All volunteers will need to register through Delaware State Park for more information.
We have a cap of 40 total volunteers for this date.
Should the weather be excessively bad (extremely high winds) we may cancel the event. Otherwise, we will be going on rain or shine. Please dress warmly and wear comfortable shoes.
