Help the Gettysburg National Military Park clear Devil’s Den on Sept. 24.

The Gettysburg National Military Park is looking for up to 50 volunteers to help us clear Devil’s Den of woody vegetation in anticipation of reopening the area at the end of the month.

The event helps celebrate National Public Lands Day.

We will be removing woody vegetation from the summit of the den in preparation for reopening the site after recent landscape and visitor improvements. Volunteers will use park provided tools, including hand pruners and loppers, to cut woody overgrowth. The cut overgrowth will then be dragged a short distance where park staff will chip it.

What you will need – You should wear long pants, sturdy closed-toed shoes, and a long-sleeved shirt. The park will provide tools, gloves, and water. Please bring a refillable water bottle and plenty of bug spray for ticks, chiggers, and other pests.

Details on parking will be provided to preregister volunteers only.
