Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Alliance is a group of volunteers and staff who work to promote and preserve the natural, scenic, cultural and historic resources within the National Heritage Area.
Creating the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area (AMNHA) took some time. About 400 million years to be exact, and the ingredients aren’t easy to find. Start with two geological oddities known as monadnocks, add in African-American culture, small town charm, one Trappist Monastery and combine with over 30 miles of paved hike/bike trails to create a landscape found nowhere else on earth.
Over 20 years ago a grass-roots effort began to protect and promote this landscape and in 2006, Congress signed the law that designated the 40,000 acre National Heritage Area. Today the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Alliance creates partnerships with state and county parks, religious groups, schools and colleges, civic originations, conservation groups, and elected officials to develop tourism opportunities and create events which shine the spotlight on the Heritage Area.
Located just 20 minutes east of Atlanta, the AMNHA offers visitors a chance to escape the city at peaceful mountain lakes and miles of wooded trails. Those looking for more of a thrill can race over switchbacks on the 30+ mile Arabia Mountain Path (AMP) or even spend the night in a tree. Each season offers visitors a host of new reasons to continue to explore the lunar landscape and deep history of the AMNHA.
