On behalf of the National Park Service, the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation's HOPE Crew initiative, with sponsorship from D/2 Biological Solution, we thank you for your interest in the Volunteer Month (March 17-30) at Chalmette National Cemetery in Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve.

The goal of this project is to connect the city of New Orleans with the preservation movement and the National Park Service. Through hands-on work, volunteers will learn how to properly document, realign, and clean headstones in Chalmette National Cemetery.
