Please join us on Saturday 9 November 2019 from 9 to 12 noon. 
Meet at the Parks Main Entrance: 1343 Pasadena Ave, Atlanta 30306Please come help restore habitat for native plants and wildlife, and control invasive plants, such as kudzu, privet, ivy, chaff flower, cherry laurel, holly, etc. Invasive plants are relatively easy to spot and cut, or better, to uproot.This effort fits well within a state effort to control invasive plants in Georgia; see www.gainvasives.org. We’ll continue to remove ivy, privet, chaff flower and kudzu that have been invading our parks. We’ll also protect the 15 new trees that were planted last year along the banks of Peachtree Creek South Fork.If you are interested in the beautiful 13 Champion Trees of our parks, please see this map. We’ll organize a champion tree walk next year. A future project is to better mark these trees, so people can spot them easily.

 

 

To work in the park, please bring (not essential, but useful if you have):

  • Rugged footwear and long pants (to protect you)
  • Loppers, Shears, Cutters, Pruners, Shovels, Rakes
  • Large bags (paper or plastic for yard trimmings)
  • Gardening gloves (some will be provided)
  • Water (will be provided).

Park Pride has kindly provided tools to assist our group.

A workday in the park is a great opportunity for everyone to get some exercise, enjoy nature, and help maintain our forest. Also to serve our community and meet new neighbors. We hope to see you there.

This will be our 2nd volunteer workday this fall. We had 10 workdays in 2018-2019, and 1 last month. Our group is now recognized by Park Pride as an official Friends of the Park group. If you are interested in volunteering for our parks in various capacities, such as web communications, or sharing photos in social media, or fundraising, please let us know. Our group is growing and needs additional help.

Questions or suggestions? Please feel free to contact us.
