FoWB is an all-volunteer organization whose mission and privilege is to to support other Historic Preservation organizations in stewardship efforts for the Wilderness and adjacent battlefields. We are a very hands on and activity oriented organization.

We could use your time and talent and we promise it will be rewarding, enlightening and a memorable experience. 

Some of the areas where volunteers can contribute their time and talent are as follows:

On the Battlefield

Park Clean Up Days

Hundreds of volunteers are needed each spring for the annual National Park Day event!  We also sponsor smaller cleanup events throughout the year. Join our mailing list to be notified about the events and/or contact us.

Occasional Special Projects as Needed

FoWB occasionally recruits volunteers for special projects like clearing new walking trails. Join our mailing list to be notified about the events and/or contact us.


Group Involvement

Looking for a fun outing for your scouts, church, school or club?  Contact us about volunteering at one of our battlefield projects. It’s a great team building opportunity and ‘gets the kids out of the house’!  Contact us for more information

FoWB periodically provides volunteer resources for the Park Service and other organizations for special events. Volunteers are routinely needed for parking cars, event check-in, crowd control, etc. Join our mailing list to be notified about special event volunteer needs. Contact us for more information.
