Fall Antietam Work Day Scheduled

Our Fall Work Day will take place on Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022, at the Reel farm (opposite the main entrance to the battlefield). We will be clearing small trees and brush along the eastern border of the property, along Rt. 65. We will be using hand tools ONLY and stacking up the small trees and brush to be disposed of later in the fall. There will also be some wire fences to remove, and tools for that will be provided. We will start at 9:00 a.m. and work until early afternoon. The rain date is Saturday, Nov. 12.

Please bring water, gloves, hand pruners, and/or saws, no chain saws please. Dress for the weather, of course. We will postpone if steady rain for the day is predicted within 24 hours before Saturday morning. Please watch our Facebook page and/or website, shaf.org for notices. Please park in the designated grass field opposite the temporary Visitor Center, a sign will be posted.
