Become a Friend or Volunteer

To become a Friend of Smithgall Woods:

Friends memberships can be purchased online from the Friends of Georgia State Parks . Please make sure to select Friends of Smithgall Woods as your chapter preference.

Friends memberships can also be purchased at the Smithgall Woods Visitor’s Center.

The Friends ParkPass works exactly the same as the regular ParkPass. However, now other Friends members will be able to easily recognize you, and site managers and park staff can more easily recognize you to thank you in person for your support.


To become a Smithgall Woods volunteer:

Complete our volunteer form at under “volunteer”.

Attend a Volunteer Training Day.

To decide about becoming a Friends Volunteer, an optional way you can learn more about volunteer activities is to attend a Friends monthly gathering, which is held on the First Tuesday of every month at 2:00 pm.  Send us an email at for directions to the meeting.

For more information about volunteering at Smithgall Woods, email us at or stop by our Visitor’s Center.
