Volunteer Opportunities

Become a Volunteer! Besides the value that volunteers add to the public's experience, volunteers themselves become better informed and more knowledgeable about the environmental and social issues affecting natural areas. There are opportunities for almost every age, interest, and skill. Volunteers are most successful when they contribute to the overall objectives of their parent organizations. The Caesar Creek Area is owned and controlled by several government agencies with the support of more than a few volunteer groups.

Geocaching is a relatively new outdoor sport that uses the Global Positioning System features of your smart phone to guide you to a cache of notes, souvenirs, and whatnot. It can be physically and mentally challenging, and a successful hunt is rewarding. For an overview, follow this link: link goes to REI Co-op. To get started, search the web using "geocache at Caesar Creek"; you'll find a list of geocaches in the area.
