Trees Atlanta Volunteering in East Atlanta, Sat Feb 25th
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.
