Falls Lake is located in the beautiful and bustling triangle area of North Carolina. Although considered a metropolitan lake, Falls Lake has it all! With over 12,400 acres of water surrounded by 25,500 acres of undeveloped public lands, we are an oasis for many from out of state and right around the corner.

As a Corps of Engineers volunteer at Falls Lake, you will need to provide your own transportation to and from the lake. Mileage may be reimbursable. However, depending on availability, and with the proper training, a volunteer may also utilize government vehicles while on the job. All equipment including safety equipment and personal protective gear will be provided. Safety training will also be provided. Volunteers will be required to wear volunteer insignia (badge, t-shirt, vest, hat, etc.). Volunteers over the age of 18 can be trained to use power tools such as a chainsaw or weed trimmer.
