  • There are student opportunities to volunteer there time at the Learning Center to qualify for their community service, by volunteering at the Learning Center

  • There are also a number of Civil War reenacting groups in our Buffalo area, that we can help with students continued Civil War interest

  • Take part in our Gettysburg battlefield monument cleanup! Our Echoes Through Time Learning Center has adopted a monument of the 154th NY Volunteers at the Gettysburg battlefield. Our staff goes to Gettysburg twice a year to clean up the area around the 154th NY Monument. We go down once in the Spring, and once in the fall. Those in Scouting get a merit badge from the park service. Our Cleanup only takes a few hours – but afterwards we do a battlefield tour, given by one of our  staff or directors. Your reward is helping to preserve a battlefield & getting a free tour of the battlefield – contact us for more information & check this site for dates
