Looking for ways to get involved? There are numerous ways to be a part of it and to help the park. You may want to consider becoming a volunteer, for a single work day event, or over a longer period of time. You may want to join the park friends group, the Appomattox 1865 Foundation, or both!

2016 Photo Contest, Celebrating 100th Birthday of the NPS at Appomattox!

The park and its friends group, the Appomattox 1865 Foundation announce a photo contest in recognition of the 100th birthday of the NPS. There are several categories in which you can enter a single photo. The contest runs from April 1, 2016 through June 1, 2016 and photos need to be taken inside the park during that time (except for the pre-1990 category). Below you will find .pdf files for the application, rules, and a model release form if people are in your shots.
