The Catoosa County News - - COMMENTARY -

Join vol­un­teers across the na­tion on Satur­day, Sept. 30, tak­ing part in Na­tional Public Lands Day, the largest sin­gle-day vol­un­teer ef­fort for public lands in the United States.

This year’s ac­tiv­i­ties at Chicka­mauga and Chat­tanooga Na­tional Military Park will fo­cus on the walk­ing path lo­cated at the his­toric Brother­ton Cabin (Tour Stop 4) in Chicka­mauga Bat­tle­field. These walk­ways pro­vide easy ac­cess to the cabin site and are in need of re­plac­ing.

Sign-up will start at 8:30 a.m. in the lower park­ing lot of the Chicka­mauga Bat­tle­field Vis­i­tor Cen­ter. Come dressed for out­door work and wear clothes you do not mind get­ting dirty. For safety rea­sons and due to the na­ture of the work, cloth­ing should in­clude long-sleeved shirts, long pants, work gloves, and ten­nis shoes or work boots. Pre­pare for the sun with a cap, sun­screen, bug spray, and plenty of wa­ter to drink.

Af­ter the event, an in­ter­pre­tive pro­gram will be pro­vided by park staff be­gin­ning at 2 pm. Please meet at the Chicka­mauga Bat­tle­field Vis­i­tor Cen­ter for this pro­gram.
