Planned Activities
Join us for a good, old-fashioned spring clean up! Enjoy a day out with like-minded supporters of National Historic Landmark Fort Mifflin and help us with a number of landscape, nature trail and other tasks as we prepare for a busy season ahead. We will also be working on set up for an evening event, moving tables and benches and hauling supplies.

We respect your time and energy so please register by Thursday, April 4 so that we are properly prepared and organized. All students must be accompanied by an adult.

History or Educational Activities
We will begin the day with an overview of the site's three centuries of service to the United States and a cannon demonstration, and award a lucky hard worker with the chance to fire the afternoon's closing shot. HUZZAH!

All participants present at the end of the afternoon become members of our Volunteer Corps and will receive a complimentary individual membership to visit us as our guest during regular daytime hours for a year!
