Sacramento, Calif., has been chosen for the Fall 2012 Tourism Cares for Historic Sacramento volunteer program.

Scheduled to celebrate World Tourism Day, the program invites hundreds of travel and tourism professionals to join with their colleagues from across the country and around the world to give back to historic sites in need of care and rejuvenation. Volunteers will arrive in Sacramento on Sept. 27 and work all day on Sept. 28. Registration is now available on the Tourism Cares website.

“Volunteers will be greeted by an enthusiastic, appreciative and welcoming Sacramento tourism industry as they do important restoration and general refurbishing”, said Bruce Beckham, executive director of Tourism Cares. “This is meaningful work that will help our colleagues in Sacramento continue to proudly interpret the history and culture of their city.”

Travel industry volunteers will paint, landscape and rebuild areas in Old Sacramento, a National Historic Landmark District and State Historic Park located along the Sacramento River. www.tourismcares.org/volunteer
