Volunteers needed to help clean Black Jack Battlefield for Park Day

March 21, 2011

Volunteers are needed Saturday, April 2, to help clean historic Black Jack Battlefield as part of Park Day, a national effort to clean Civil War battlefields.

This is the third year that volunteers will help clean Black Jack Battlefield and Nature Park, 163 E. 2000 Road, Wellsville. Workers will receive T-shirts and hear a local historian speak about the importance of Black Jack Battlefield.

Volunteers should wear sturdy clothes and bring gloves and water. They will pick up trash, gather branches and sticks and ready the park for its tourist season starting at 9 a.m. that day. Rain will not delay park cleanup.

For more information about the volunteer opportunity, contact Carol von Tersch at 785-883-2106 or
