The park is maintained by volunteers, and we can always use more help. Besides the typical grounds care, we are also looking for people willing to invest their time and skills in the preservation of the equipment.
Ultimately our goal is to restore each item to "like new" condition, however much work is needed to accomplish this.
More will be posted on the specific needs of the park, at a later date. One possibility may be an "Adopt a Machine" campaign, in which volunteers will focus their efforts on a single piece of equipment, and the machine will be dedicated, in their honor.
