Black Jack cleanup set for Saturday

April 8, 2010

Volunteers are needed to help spruce up the Black Jack Battlefield and Nature Park starting at 9 a.m. Saturday just east of Baldwin City.

It will be part of a nation-wide effort known as Park Day, where volunteers all over the country work to clean up national historic sites. This will be the 15th year for Park Day.

At the Black Jack site, the volunteers will remove a dilapidated modern outbuilding, clean up trash, collect sticks and branches and generally spruce up the park for the upcoming tourist season.
