For More Information
Meeting place
Volunteers should meet with coordinators at the Sullivan House on the day of the event. Anyone under the age of 18 will need to have a parent or guardian complete their volunteer waiver.

Please arrive no later than 10:00 if you'd like to help with the trails. Any volunteers arriving after 10:00 am will be assisting with clean-up in or near the Sullivan House.
Planned Activities
There will be two groups, one to work throughout the park trails assisting in clearing out potentially hazardous brush. The same group will hand prune invasive or harmful plants which have taken root on the forts.

The second group will work inside and around the Sullivan House to clean the site for visitors and prepare it for opening day in 2023. This will include dusting, mopping, airing out, vacuuming, and generally organizing materials.
History or Educational Activities
We will offer volunteers an overview of the site and provide information about tours. In addition, we will have tour guides on site for those who are interested in learning more about the site before, during, or after working.
Should I bring any tools or supplies?
Volunteers should come dressed in weather appropriate work clothing. They should plan on bringing their own safety equipment, including, but not limited to: masks, gloves, knee pads, boots, and workwear. Should they prefer to work throughout the park, they should provide their own hand tools.
No motorized tools or equipment allowed.
Is there a rain date?
In the instance of inclement weather, Park Day will be moved to the following Saturday.
Please note
Light snacks will be provided.
