what kind of things are there for you to volunteer to do?

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...

So, do they give you a list of these opportunities when you sign on?

I've tried about 10 searches and have gotten zero results... do they not have any volunteer events listed?

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. ;-)
