Lake Cumberland

Lake Cumberland offers many volunteer opportunities in recreation and natural resources management.  With over 100,000 acres of land and water to manage, volunteers are a vital part of our work force.  As a volunteer, you can gain valuable skills, meet new people, work outdoors, and in many cases see a new area of the county.  This gives many a proud sense of contributing to the conservation and management of our precious resources.
