    2020 Titanic Day of Service

    Our second annual Titanic Day of Service will commemorate and honor the people who lost their lives when the Titanic hit an iceberg and sank on April 14-15, 1912.

    This year, we will paint benches and mulch garden areas.  

    What to bring the day of the project:

    • Water and snack
    • Closed toe shoes and appropriate clothing
    • Sunscreen and other personal needs
    • Garden gloves if you have them

    Everyone will need to sign a volunteer sheet at the project site. (If participates are under 18 each user agreement has to be filled out by a parent or guardian).

    All the other tools and equipment needed will be provided for you. 

    Please share any photos or experiences on social media and use our hashtags!  #NPSvolunteer #findyourpark  #nationalparks  #nationalmall.
