With more than 5,000 recreation sites across the nation, volunteers play a critical role in the success of the Corps of Engineers recreation mission. In the Mobile District alone, more than 10,000 people volunteer each year and that number continues to grow as new opportunities become available.
Volunteering is an excellent way to give back to the community, help to preserve nature's beauty, protect the wildlife, meet people, and a great way to remain active.
Lake Seminole has a wide array of volunteer opportunities from park hosting - to shoreline cleanups to manning a booth at a local fair. Our office's main focus is to build a strong volunteer base for years to come. Depending on the volunteer opportunity that you are interested in, you may be eligible for a free campsite with full amenities for the entire duration of your volunteer efforts.
We welcome all of those interested to call or visit us. Interested individuals may also visit the Corps of Engineers Volunteer Clearinghouse, or call 1-800-865-8337 to enter their specific experience, availability and requests. To speak with our volunteer coordinator, please contact the Jim Woodruff / Lake Seminole Project Management Site Office at (229) 662-2001.
