Preserve, Promote, Enhance
Our mission is to champion the conservation of the natural, historic, and cultural resources of Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park, including Moccasin Bend National Archeological District. We engage current and future generations in preserving and promoting the stories of these national treasures.
Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park is the first (and largest) National Military Park in the country. The six National Park units (Chickamauga Battlefield; Lookout Mountain Battlefield; Missionary Ridge; Moccasin Bend National Archeological District; Orchard Knob; and Signal Point) commemorate vivid stories of conflict, change, reconciliation and reunion. These are places for remembrance, reflection and discovering more about what it means to be an American. It is our goal to assist our National Park with rejuvenating hallowed ground and irreplaceable cultural artifacts.
Our dedicated staff and tireless volunteers focus on strengthening the resources of our National Park, while preserving the historical and environmental elements so the public can learn from and enjoy these spaces. We engage in community outreach to ensure the park experiences are inclusive, and that everyone feels inspired to come appreciate the past, understand its relevance to the present, and help preserve it for years to come.
