Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park
Created by Civil War veterans as the nation’s second national park, the park today preserves, protects, and interprets multiple Civil War battles and more than 12,000 years of American Indian habitation. Nearly 100 miles of trails connect 1,200 monuments and markers, surrounded by vistas and abundant natural resources. The National Park Service works to preserve these resources to educate the future.
Park volunteer programs constantly change, with a variety of opportunities for youth volunteers. Special service days often include the following:
Landscape restoration (one day event; Saturdays)
Trail work (one day event; usually once per month; Saturdays)
Special Events (September and November)—set up/breakdown, parking, visitor information, etc. (weekends)
