The headquarters for Kerr Lake State Recreation Areas at Satterwhite Point has announced a Volunteer Day at Hibernia on Saturday, May 21st. “We know it’s a little late and short notice, but there are a lot of mitigating circumstances with staff moves and some maintenance projects,” said Assistant Superintendent Lee Amos, “But we are hoping that members of Kerr Lake Park Watch and the general public will turn out for a while to help and that the weather will cooperate.”
Projects on tap for this year’s Volunteer Day include putting up some signs on some trails, recently refurbished by the maintenance and park personnel. Several display cases that will house, for educational and informational purposes, both historical and environmental items and info have been built along some of Hibernia’s trails.
Park staff also hopes to work on the Hargrove family cemetery in which is buried the original owner and builder of Hibernia. The cemetery needs some attention along with metal fence painting. Real go-getters can bring limb trimming equipment and help push back limbs from campsites. Last year’s successful Volunteer Day prompted a video about how a few can do much: KLPW 2015 VOL DAY at HIBERNIA
Volunteers are badly needed, particularly with a short invite window. Volunteers are asked to be at the picnic shelter between Area 2 and Area 3 on the main park road at 9:00 AM, Saturday, May 21. For more information, contact the park office at (252) 438-7791.
