Support the park as a Volunteer in Parks (VIP): become a steward of your national park, enjoy the outdoors with like-minded people, learn about the park’s resources.
There are as many rewarding ways to volunteer as there are volunteers. Join a special event or work day. If you have more time, become a Trail Blazer, Bike VIP, River VIP, help at the visitor center or contribute to long-term projects. Become a VIP and “Find Your Park” at the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.
The Trail Crew Leader training course is a two‐day course (you must attend both days) for any volunteer that wants to learn the basic technical trail work skills to lead a crew.
