Summer has officially begun and our park is buzzing with hundreds of visitors everyday. We want your visit to be safe and rewarding so here are a few important rules to keep in mind as you plan your trip to Hopewell Culture National Historical Park's public sites. . Please keep off all mounds and earthwork walls at all of our public sites. This rule applies at Mound City Group, Seip Earthworks, Hopewell Mound Group and Hopeton Earthworks. Please keep in mind that these mounds are burial mounds and mark the spot of human burials. They were meant to be revered and respected, not utilized for short-term entertainment. Not only is climbing on mounds disrespectful, it is also damaging to the mound and is not safe. We may not have known the people who were interred here, but we do know that they were respectfully and painstakingly buried on these sites by others who meant to recognize them. . We love having dogs visit our park! Please remember that they must be on a leash at all times and that the leash cannot be longer than six feet. Only service animals are allowed inside the Visitor Center. Please clean-up after your pet. . Picnics are welcome in designated areas only (like the picnic tables at all of our public earthworks and near our parking lots). Please dispose of all trash in provided containers. . General information about the park and the rules can be found here: https://www.nps.gov/hocu/planyourvisit/index.htm . Help us preserve these special places and stay off of the mounds and prevent your pets from climbing them too. If you see someone on the mounds, please let a ranger know so that we can address the issue. Thank you so much for following park rules so all can enjoy these amazing sites! #findyourpark #parkrules #safetyfirst #leavenotrace #respect #stewardship #parkstewards

Today’s Throwback Thursday goes out to my Momma. I hate that she’s wearing the NPS version of a trucker hat (before they were cool again) because she was doing black powder work, but this is the only photo I have of us together in uniform. She’s the one who gave me my love of Civil War history, although there were several summers of my childhood that being dragged along to historic sites every Monday & Tuesday was NOT my idea of fun, and she gave me my deep-rooted love for the parks. Thanks, Mom! ❤️😘🤟🏻 . . . #nationalparkweek #findyourpark #parkrangers #throwbackthursday

"What keeps us coming back regularly to restore native habitat? Volunteers like 12 year old JayDe! At Tuesday’s Park Champions habitat restoration event in Fort Ord Dunes State Park, Jay De let slip that for his 12th birthday he wanted to do something to help the environment. So he scoured the internet for an event he could attend. When he saw that Park Champions was restoring habitat on his birthday, and that the minimum age was 12 years old, he immediately signed up with his mom to attend! JayDe shared this story while receiving an honorary Park Champions pin during our snack break. All of the volunteers attending, young and old, were impressed by Jay De’s commitment to the environment, and heartened by this young person’s enthusiasm and hard work. The prospects for our earth’s future health seem brighter knowing that there are committed young people like Jay De to protect it!"-John Salcido, Park Champions Core Leader #parkchampions #parkstewards #youthinparks #volunteerinparks
