Volunteer this Saturday (Park Day) to help clean up Fort Granger

The Civil War Trust has announced its 16th Annual Park Day, a national effort to clean up and raise community awareness of Civil War related historic sites. The City of Franklin Parks Dept has joined with the CWT by encouraging volunteers to help clean up Fort Granger vegetation on Saturday March 31, 2012.

This project is in conjunction with the Franklin’s Battlefield Preservation Commission’s intent to prepare the Park for the sesquicentennial anniversary of the Battle of Franklin. It is our hope to improve and interpret Fort Granger in a way that encourages a more thoughtful and educational framework, and to bring more awareness to the significance of the Fort’s role in the Battle of Franklin.

To sign up please email parksinfo@franklintn.gov  to request a simple registration/release form or go to City of Franklin : Parks to download a form. Please bring gloves and pruners and lots of enthusiasm. We will supply water and drinks. For more information please call Deanna at 794-2103.
