Visitors of Bristoe Station Battlefield Heritage Park in Bristow will soon be able to explore a trail used during the Civil War.
But the 200-yard area needs a little tender loving care before it can become available.
Officials are seeking volunteers to help clean up parts of the 140-acre park, which offers 2.7 miles of trails.
The cleanup will be held on April 21 at the intersection of Iron Brigade Unit Avenue and Tenth Alabama Way, according to a release. It is part of the National Park Day effort.
In addition to routine maintenance, such as picking up trash, officials and volunteers will focus on a road Civil War armies used.
“For this year, what we’re going to be doing, in addition to our usual activities of picking up trash and redoing mulch trails, is to convert what is the remnants of an old Civil War road into an actual trail that people can use,” Historic Site Manager Bill Backus said. “We’ll have some tools so people can clear out some of the scrub brush, and then we’ll take mulch and mulch that road bed.”
To learn more information about the cleanup, call 703-365-7895.
