What is the difference between Ocmulgee Mounds Association, Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park, and Ocmulgee National Park & Preserve Initiative?

It can get a little bit confusing, we understand! On the bright side, having a multitude of different names currently connected to the Ocmulgee Mounds is a good thing! But, let's try and simplify it: Ocmulgee Mounds Association (OMA) -- that's us! Since 1942, we have been the official non-profit partner of Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park. OMA is a volunteer, membership-supported non-profit whose mission is to provide resources to support the educational and interpretive programs at the park. Our funding comes from the park's museum store revenue, OMA Memberships, events, donations, and grants. OMA support ranges from interpretive visual aids, clay, and rack cards to funding the Lantern Light Tours, Ocmulgee Indigenous Celebration, Every Kid Outdoors and Cultural programs. Additional support includes the river cane restoration project, the park sign at the Emery Hwy entrance, the Outdoor Classroom, and the canoe exhibit! Our goal is to make investments for long-term, meaningful impact at the park -- and by extension, in our community!

 

Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park (OMNHP) -- that's the park itself!

Managed by the National Park Service, Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park is a historical site of over 12,000 years of continuous human habitation located in Macon, Georgia.

You can learn more about the park at www.nps.gov/ocmu.

 

 

Ocmulgee National Park & Preserve Initiative (ONPPI) -- did you notice the "Historical" part of the park's title? ONPPI is working to change that!

ONPPI is a community-based group of Middle Georgia and Muscogee (Creek) citizens working together to expand the current site of the Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park into Georgia’s first National Park and Preserve! Learn more about their mission and progress at www.ocmulgeepark.org.
