SHARPSBURG - The public is invited to participate in this year's reforestation effort of the historic West Woods, beginning Saturday, Nov. 1 and continuing through the end of that month, Tuesday through Saturday.
This fall, the park plans to continue to reforest 12 acres of the West Woods. The 1998 spring effort will mark the beginning of reforestation efforts at the historic North Woods at the Antietam National Battlefield; signups for that will begin after the first of the year.
Monetary contributions can be made for the purchasing of reforestation project materials or can be designated for the purchase of a tree to plant in memory of a loved one. For more information, contact the Natural Resources Division at Antietam National Battlefield, P.O. Box 158, Sharpsburg, Md. 21782 or call 301-432-2243.
