Volunteer Committees are a great way to put your special skills and talents to use for the benefit of the park, your community and the state! Volunteer Committees generally meet on their own to develop plans and activities. The Chairperson or a delegated representative will attend the Board of Directors Meeting to present the plans to the Board.
Check out the committees below then email email@example.com with your choice(s). Please state what you would like to do for the Committee(s) and how your talents, skills and knowledge apply.
Plan and coordinate big events, such as the Annual Meeting and Your State Parks Day, including phone calls, legwork and setup.
Learn all you can about the park property through bookwork, interviews and on-site archaeological work -- and prepare to present that in the park's Visitor Center.
Get out on the trails and identify what we have out there — it would be great to go along on Trail Scouting and Routing missions to help us avoid sensitive spots or areas. Take photos and eventually assist with an interpretive display in the Visitor Center.
There are a bunch of geocaches at The Bend. Learn what geocaching is, hold "learning hikes" for newbies, and more!
Scouting, routing and trail section leader opportunities. (Trail building... that's just about everyone!)
Invite local businesses and organizations to donate funds (or time, since in reality, time is money).
Paddle patrol the Hooch for debris and navigational hazards. Help with Sweep the Hooch and Rivers alive.
Head the effort to get equine trails into the park, facilities maintenance and activities.
Help keep us current with website and social media updates, taking photography, updating maps, etc.
Ask us about projects for volunteer groups. We will work with you to create an experience that makes sense for your organization. View our Project List.
A chance for employees to spend time together in an informal, positive, outdoor environment.
Employee volunteer days provide unique opportunities for employer advertisement and promotion.
Volunteering in the community through an employer empowers the workforce; improving employee perceptions of the companies they work for and the companies perception in the community.
The volunteer projects at Chattahoochee Bend State Park are lasting fixtures in the community. They provide an opportunity for employees to see their impact for years to come.
