Fernbank Forest Day of Service

On Saturday, April 11, join the Georgia Conservancy's Generation Green for a day of service in Atlanta's Fernbank Forest. The forest, located adjacent to the Fernbank Museum of Natural History, is a 65-acre old-growth mixed-wood forest that contains many of the city's oldest trees, including massive white oaks,tulips poplars and loblolly pines. The forest is currently undergoing restoration.

The volunteer work will assist in the forest's restoration and will include removal of invasive species such as ivy and privet, moving and raking mulching and cleaning up debris.

Long sleeves, long pants and boots are recommended. Water will be provided, but please bring a water bottle for convenience. There will be a possibility of encountering bees, ants, spiders, snakes, poison ivy, or uneven terrain - basically anything that one may commonly find in a forest.
