National Public Lands Day A Fee Free Day Saturday, September 24
Fort Frederica National Monument is currently recruiting volunteers for a National Public Lands Day event to be held Saturday, September 24th, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Volunteers will assist the National Park Service with planting native shrubs near the Visitor Center. Fees for the day will be suspended for all park visitors
In an effort to provide an activity that encourages family involvement and community appreciation for Fort Frederica and its cultural resources, small Inkberry (Ilex glauba) shrubs will be available for families or individuals to plant on the monument grounds. Volunteers will prepare the ground and tools will be provided. Volunteers who assist with the planting will receive a coupon to visit any National Public Land for free, for one visit only.
Groups, families, or individuals are welcome to attend. Comfortable clothes, long-sleeved shirts and sturdy shoes are recommended. Volunteers can spend the day or just a few hours.
By volunteering, local citizens can take pride in their public lands and help preserve and protect our nations cultural and natural treasures for future generations.
For more information about volunteering for this project please contact Fort Frederica at 912-638-3639.
