ALTO, Texas (KTRE) - As the cleanup continues at the Caddo Mount State Historic Site, which was significantly damaged by a tornado in April, organizers are once again asking for volunteers to help keep the progress moving forward.

Caddo Mounds State Historic Site created an event on Facebook, asking for volunteers to take part in a Volunteer Day on Saturday, August 10, by aiding in the process of clearing debris from fields and working in Snake Woman’s Garden, which features herbs and vegetables grown historically by the Caddo.

Caddo Mounds officials have said they hope to be able to maintain the grounds while rebuilding gets underway.

The event is one of many such organized efforts to help the site recover after it took a direct hit from one of two tornadoes that tore through the city of Alto on April 13.
