Fort Frederick State Park staff are seeking volunteers to help with their spring clean up. Participants will meet at Woodmont Natural Resources Management Area (NRMA) and join a park ranger in gathering trash and debris from the region’s scenic overlook.

Trash bags and water will be provided but staff recommend volunteers bring work gloves, sturdy shoes, clothes they can get dirty in, sunscreen, snacks and insect repellant. After the clean up, participants will be treated to a short, guided hike around the area.

Woodmont is managed as a cooperative effort under the Fort Frederick State Park Complex and the Maryland Wildlife & Heritage Service.
