The Ocmulgee National Park and Preserve Initiative (ONPPI) is a community based group of Middle Georgia citizens working together to expanding the Ocmulgee National Monument, Bond Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, and the Ocmulgee River corridor from Macon to Hawkinsville into the first National Park and Preserve east of the Mississippi River. Georgia does not have a National Park and we believe these areas are deserving of the recognition and protection National Park status would provide. Like other communities with National Parks, we would also benefit economically from National Park status. We encourage you to explore the Indian Mounds, Bond Swamp Wildlife Refuge, and the Ocmulgee River, which are jewels of history, culture, wildlife, and natural resources.
