Stones River National Battlefield and eleven local partners will host a major volunteer event on Saturday April 11, 2015 that will kick-off our community's celebration of the National Park Service Centennial. 250-300 volunteers will gather at the City of Murfreesboro's Old Fort Park and work to remove invasive exotic plants and trash from city and National Park Service areas including Old Fort Park, Fortress Rosecrans, Lytle Creek, and the Lytle Creek Greenway.
Registration begins at 8:30 AM and Picnic Pavilion #2 in Old Fort Park. Walmart and the Friends of Stones River National Battlefield will provide lunch. Following lunch, participants are invited to join a park ranger for a special walking tour of Fortress Rosecrans.
This event is also part of Park Day, a nationwide event to encourage volunteer service to preserve one of our nation's most important Civil War sites sponsored by the Civil War Trust, History™, Take Pride in America.
