Trees Atlanta has done a lot in Enota Park so far in the early stages of its development as the largest public park in our community. In recent months, they have cleared a few very overgrown acres and planted more than 200 trees! Now, they’re inviting us to help! This is the message from Trees Atlanta:
Help us improve Enota Park by removing evergreen invasive plant species within the park, plus help us stabilize the hillside with a large quantity of grass seed.
-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.
-Wear 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. It is important to stay hydrated. No one-time-use plastic bottles, please.
-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.
Louie Lewis will be coordinating for Trees Atlanta. He can be reached at 678.588.9863.
