American Battlefield Trust Park Day
On Saturday, April 10, two OHS historic military sites are participating in the American Battlefield Trust’s annual Park Day event. History enthusiasts from across the country take part in an effort to help keep our nation’s heritage not only preserved but pristine. Since 1996, American Battlefield Trust has sponsored Park Day, an annual hands-on preservation event to help Civil War—and now Revolutionary War and War of 1812—battlefields and historic sites take on maintenance projects large and small. Those interested in volunteering should contact the site manager listed below to participate.
Fort Towson Historic Site is the meeting place for those interested in volunteering at the nearby Doaksville Archaeological Site. Planned activities include cleaning interpretive signs, performing minor trail repairs, removing brush, making repairs to the well structure, clearing trees along the trails, and adding materials to the site’s entrance road. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own gloves, insect repellent, and a rake and garden loppers if possible. The staff has planned a tour of the historic site as part of the Park Day activities for volunteers. For more information about becoming a Park Day volunteer or to preregister to work the event on April 10 at the Fort Towson/Doaksville Archaeological Site, contact John Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org or 580-873-2634.
