Fort Knox will be opening for the season soon. Before the gates open, the park grounds need to be cleaned up.

Volunteers are needed to help get Fort Knox in Prospect ready for the season. It's been a long winter and the grounds of the historic fort need to be tidied up. Folks are needed to rake, sweep and clean up the debris winter left in its wake.

Volunteers should report to the fort visitor center around 10AM Saturday, April 21. Clean up tools will be provided. However, if you can, bring a rake and gloves from home. All volunteers will receive a free t-shirt and fort tour.

Fort Knox and the Penobscot Narrows Observatory reopens for the season May 1.
