Trading Post - Marais des Cygnes Massacre - Park Day

Park Day is an annual event to clean the site sponsored by the American Battlefield Trust.  Last year 30 volunteers helped clear trails. We invite members of the community to come together and help keep our national and state battlefields and Civil War historical areas looking their best.

We ask volunteers to meet at 9 a.m. in the far parking lot near the Marais des Cygnes ravine. Those who are able are invited to bring rakes, shovels, chainsaws, loppers, pruners, a mule or other ATV, and a skid loader. Please wear appropriate attire; leather work gloves, boots, long pants, and long sleeve shirts.

We also have projects at Mine Creek Battlefield beginning at 9 a.m.

Your help is greatly appreciated!
