Plants abound at Ocmulgee Mounds year-round

NPS/Martinson

The landscape at Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park is lush, with over 400 different species of plants. Some thrive in emergent wetlands; others congregate in the upland forests or fields. Many are important food sources to the animals that call Ocmulgee Mounds home. While some plant species belong here, others are invasive plants. The park staff works hard to keep the invasive plants from wiping out native plant communities. One current project helping the park return to its natural ecology is our rivercane restoration project.
