Civil War | Park Day Volunteer Opportunity
Park Day @ Historic Coburn-Baker Cemetery
Saturday, April 9, 2022 @ 10:00 AM EDT
Kentucky Highway 19
Augusta, KY 41002
Meet at the cemetery located along KY 19, about two miles south of Augusta, and 1.5 miles north of the AA Highway. Look for cars and flags.
We made a great amount of improvement in removing honeysuckle and opening up the cemetery. This year we will work on removing the remaining honeysuckle along the property lines and installing a sign. We will have a wood chipper onsite. We will work for about two hours to reclaim this once lost cemetery, where two Civil War and two Revolutionary War veterans rest.
Should I bring any tools or supplies?
Bring chainsaws, brush-cutters, and wheelbarrows
Is there a rain date?
Park Day will occur rain or shine on April 9th, 2022
Wear work clothes, gloves, and maybe consider eye protection. We will have some folks cut the honeysuckle, and others will drag the cuttings to the woodchipper, and then some folks to take the chips and fill in some of the low lying areas in the cemetery.
