March 11, 2011|SMITHSBURG

 Antietam National Battlefield is participating in the national Park Day activities meeting at 8 a.m. Saturday, April 2, at Antietam National Battlefield Visitor Center, 5831 Dunker Church Road, Sharpsburg.

Work projects will begin at 9 a.m. and continue until noon.

Volunteers are needed to plant wildflowers and trees, prepare wildflower planting areas, and help clean up a dump site.

Antietam National Battlefield will provide some tools, but is asking volunteers who can, to bring a shovel or trowel (clearly identified as their own tool) with them.

Participants are asked to dress for the weather, bring a water bottle, and wear sturdy shoes or boots.

In addition, leather work gloves are strongly recommended. A special interpretive program will start at 1:30 p.m. and end at 3:30 p.m.

In the event that the weather is bad, the event will be postponed until Saturday, April 9. For more information and to register, contact Debbie Cohen at 301-432-2243, ext. 13, or Debbie_Cohen@nps.gov.
