Volunteering: A vital contribution at Wappapello Lake!

Volunteers make vital contributions to our missions. Individuals, groups and organizations donate valuable time and talent. As a volunteer, you get great rewards such as; meeting people, gaining valuable work experience, helping others and a flexible work schedule. Volunteers provide valuable services which help provide quality services to visitors.  

Partnering volunteer organizations such as the Wappapello Lake Area Association, contribute time and resources each and every year to aid the U.S. Corps of Engineers and the surrounding communities by providing countless volunteer hours and resources to provide community events such as the Old Greenville Black Powder Rendezvous, the Independence Day Celebration, Old Greenville Days and Festival of Lights Auto Tour. Additionally, organizations such as the Wake Foundation and National Wild Turkey Federation help make events such as the Mobility Impaired Deer Hunt and The W.O.O.D.S. (Wappapello Outdoor Opportunity for Disabled Sportsmen) possible.  

While visiting the Bill Emerson Memorial Visitor Center you will be greeted by our volunteer staff. Across Wappapello Lake you can find volunteers working in our parks doing tasks such as park maintenance, trail maintenance, litter pickup, assisting with special events, and many other meaningful tasks.

Volunteers are a valuable part of our team, if volunteering is for you, please contact: The Wappapello Lake Management Office at (573) 222-8562. If you are interested in volunteering at other Corps projects, contact the Volunteer Clearing House at 1-800-FALTER or go to
