Veterans Pilot Program Kicks off at Thornburg Farm in North Carolina

This summer, HistoriCorps and the Student Conservation Association are teaming up to launch an innovative program engaging veterans on three National Register Place properties in three National Forests: Thornburg Farm in Uwharrie National Forest, NC; Forest Lodge in Chequamegon National Forest, WI; and Birches Picnic Shelter in Chippewa National Forest, MN.  The Veterans Historic Preservation Team will consist of seven Military veterans and will spend three to four weeks in each location before moving on to the next work site. Volunteers are already hard at work at Thornburg Farm — check it out!!
