Unearthing Native American History (and Saber-Toothed Tigers) at Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park 

In the heart of central Georgia lies one of the most unassuming, under-the-radar national park sites in America. In the quaint city of Macon, Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park preserves the massive man-made earthen mounds made by Mississippian tribes a millennium ago, in addition to history and artifacts from tribes that came before them and those that came after. Additional topics include terrifyingly epic wildlife, Civil War battles, and serene woodland hikes.   Visit our website to learn more about the Hello Ranger Community, keep your eyes peeled for our social app, and read stories from our Hello Ranger Ambassadors.
