I'm just curious - what kind of things are there for you to volunteer to do?

I just researched and planted a series in Reed Bingham State Park in SW GA and discovered this volunteering opportunity. Sounds very interesting!

Whew... if I were to list everything, you'd be reading for a long time!

So let's go with what we'll be doing in the near future at Chattahoochee Bend...

  • clean-up
  • rare/endangered flora protection
  • history hikes
  • archaeological scouting
  • mapping
  • trail blazing
  • trail building

and, of course, letterboxing...

Oh... and there's also:

  • public awareness and relations
  • membership drives
  • communications (I'm doing the newsletter, press releases and website (which should be *live* in a day or two))
  • interaction with local government (Coweta County's support for getting the park built has been phenomenal)
  • event organization

... the list goes on...

Volunteer events are handled by the Friends chapter at each park. If the chapter for your "home" park doesn't have a website, you should call or visit the park and ask for the chapter contacts.

Right. Check with the local Friends chapter. I can tell you what's happening at The Bend, but it's a bit far for you guys. ;-)
