Spring Trees Atlanta Event with the Atlanta Bar and Georgia State Bar Environmental Sections

This event will be a Forest restoration project in a local greenspace, or helping to maintain the native grass and wildflower meadow on the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum. 

 

Forest Restoration Coordinator, Kevin Mink, has set the project to be at Connally Nature Park in East Point.  This special greenspace is home to champion white oaks and rare native orchids called Pink Lady Slippers.  Your team will be helping to remove an invasive plant called Rose of Sharon.

The closest address is 2035 Mulberry Ct. East Point, GA 30344.  If you have any trouble finding the site, please call Kevin at 570-856-2314.  

 

Preparation Tips for the volunteer project

  • We will be working outdoors from 9 am to 12 pm.  It is important to arrive on time as we only provide one demonstration (it takes 10 minutes) and every volunteer needs to see it.  We also want all volunteers to stay for the entire project, and not leave before we finish.
  • This project is best for ages 12 and up.  Volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian, and all volunteers between the ages of 16 and 17 who are not accompanied by a parent/guardian must have a parent/guardian sign a waiver for them (found here). 
  • Please ask your volunteers to wear closed-toed shoes or boots (waterproof is best), clothes that can get dirty, sunscreen and bug spray as needed.
  • I recommend that volunteers bring drinking water in a reusable container.  No one-time-use plastic bottles, please.
  • Tree and meadow maintenance is hard work, so make sure to tell everyone to eat a good breakfast and come prepared to work hard.  A snack might be a good thing for those who tend to lose steam.
  • 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.
