Ocmulgee National Monument needs volunteers during special events throughout the year. Volunteers are need in September during our Indian Celebration. The event brings in 12,000 visitors over a two day period and volunteers are need in many areas during this event. In March during the Cherry Blossom Festival the park has its Lantern Light Tours. Volunteers are need during the evening event with set up and taking down of the 300 luminaries in the park. In April during our Earth day event the park needs help with handing out trees to visitors and assisting with different educational booths. Volunteers are always needed to help assist with litter pick up along the park's 5 1/2 miles of trails.

An 800 ft. boardwalk lets you visit the emergent wetlands at Ocmulgee National Monument. This 10 year old wetlands was created as a result of a massive flood in July 1994. The changes in the landscape from hardwood forest to emergent wetlands is an example of natures sucessional cycles.
