Highlight the Highlands: Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site Celebrates National Public Lands Day

10/3/19 — In the PA Highlands, on Saturday September 28th, Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site hosted a NPL Day event to preserve and protect the natural and cultural resources of the site. Volunteers, some who have never visited the site before and who traveled from Maryland, donated their time to help with a variety of projects throughout the park.

With the help of these dedicated volunteers, over 50 trees were planted, the fence around the Ironmaster’s Garden was whitewashed, and 9 sections of split rail fencing were replaced in our barnyard.

In addition to these volunteer projects, Hopewell hosted autumn and apple related activity stations including leaf identification and apple stamping.
