Volunteer with Trees Atlanta at Brownwood Park! Check out the event on Facebook and sign up here.

What: Invasive Vine Removal & Native Tree Planting

  • Help Trees Atlanta rescue young trees throughout the park from Japanese honeysuckle, an invasive vine.
  • We will also be planting a variety of native trees to help protect the forest from future canopy loss!

When: February 25, 2017 9am-12pm

Where: 1204 Pendleton St. SE Atlanta, GA 30316 (Park along Pendleton St.)

Who: Volunteers of All Ages

Things to remember:

  • It is important to arrive on time so each volunteer sees our demonstration (it takes 10 minutes). We also want all volunteers to stay for the entire project.
  • Dress in long pants and a long-sleeved shirt, closed-toed shoes or boots (waterproof is best), and clothes that can get dirty.
  • Bring drinking water in a reusable container. No one-time-use plastic bottles, please. It is important to stay hydrated even in the cold.
  • Forest Restoration is hard work, so eat a good breakfast and come prepared to work hard.
  • Projects happen rain or shine, so please check the weather beforehand and come prepared.
  • Trees Atlanta will provide all necessary tools and instruction, though volunteers may prefer to bring their own work gloves.
