Volunteers work in the garden.

Using remnants of native and historic plants, shrubs, grasses, and trees found throughout the cultural landscape of the Confederate Reunion Grounds, volunteers are invited to join grounds staff to reestablish and maintain the historic landscaping that surrounds historic features and public use areas.

Historic photographs and documents will be used to interpret the natural surroundings as part of the story for the structures, ruins, architectural features, and walking trails found within the 76-acre historic site located at the confluence of the Navasota River and Jack’s Creek.

The main program will be held weekly on Tuesdays for group work days and Brown Bag Lunch programs, but individuals are welcome to schedule other days of the week, as well. 

For additional information about projects and how to sign up, contact Dixie Hoover, site manager, at or call 254.472.0959.
