Think Green


Top of the morning!

St. Patrick's day find the Museum lawn starting to green up and the siberian squill blooming.

Daffodils are budding and the tulips are sprouting. After a long, ice and snow filled winter, spring cannot come soon enough.

Saturday, April 2nd, is the annual Park Day. In conjunction with Civil War Preservation Trust, Park Day is an opportunity for volunteers to help museum, battlefields, memorials with a variety of jobs. The Museum ground will be cleaned of copious amounts of tree debris, gardens will be raked of their protective layer of leaves, mulch will be spread, perennials and shrubs will be pruned. An army of volunteers will be needed to clean up the 3.5 acres.

Park Day will be held from 9 to 12:30 on Saturday, April 2nd. Bring your rakes and work gloves and join in the fun! Refreshments will be provided to those who participate.
