The Friends of Mammoth Cave National Park works in cooperation with the National Park Service to fund projects and programs that protect, preserve, and enhance the natural and cultural resources and the visitor experience of Mammoth Cave National Park.
We can only be accomplished with the support of individuals and organizations that care about Mammoth Cave and want to help ensure that its magic endures forever.
Walk in the Park,
Save the date.
Good Springs Access
The park will make arrangements for members of the Good Spring Church congregation to access the church and/or the cemetery during construction at Maple Springs.
This also applies to people who have family buried at Good Spring.
Scottie Powell (758-2112) is the person to contact.
Congressman Brett Guthrie stopped by Mammoth Cave National Park on May 29, 2013, for a site visit of Maple Springs Trailhead and a briefing on Big Hollow Trail. The beginning of the project, to expand the trailhead and construct 9.5 miles of trail, coincides with National Trails Day on June 1. The park has contracted with Lightsey Construction to do the project.

What would we do without Friends?
The Friends of Mammoth Cave National Park are a great help to the park, and I encourage you to join up and be a Friend, too.
Our Friends add a margin of excellence to the park and increase the stewardship of the caves, forests, rivers, and rugged karst terrain of Mammoth Cave. They help us find and build new partnerships to fund a wide variety of park programs and research. They get kids into the woods and into the cave by funding bus transportation to schools that could not afford a fieldtrip without the Friends’ help.
We are grateful to have Friends like the members of the Friends of Mammoth Cave National Park. The Friends provide a means to accept donations to further the park’s educational efforts and research. The Friends recruit volunteers who donate their sweat-equity in the park’s resource protection projects.
It’s good to have Friends.
