Organizers at the Ocmulgee National Monument say their summer workshop draws crowds every year.

Kids say they enjoy the hands on experience, while learning about history.

Park ranger, Angela Bates, says the main attraction are the mounds that date back to 900 A.D.

"Our largest mound in the park is 55 feet tall and that's probably where the chief would have lived and that's where they would have had temples. We know for a fact there were3 structures on top of the mounds," said Bates.

Bates says the workshop is full, but there is a waiting list for kidswho arestill interested in the program.

The workshop is held every Wednesday through June.
