GATLINBURG, Tenn. (AP) -- The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is recruiting volunteers for an Adopt-a-Cabin program.

Park spokeswoman Molly Schroer said the park needs light maintenance work done at more than 90 historical structures in the Smokies. The tasks involve picking up trash and debris as well as removing graffiti.

The Smokies has one of the best collections of log buildings in the eastern United States.

Volunteers will be assigned to specific buildings and should plan to work at them at least once per month.

People can get more information and volunteer by calling (865) 436-1265.
