LAST MINUTE - Volunteer for "Your State Parks Day"

  • Sep 28, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members




* FREE HIKE * FREE PARKING * FREE T-SHIRT (while supplies last)*

Learn how the Georgia State Park system became the proud personal project of Franklin Roosevelt, how the same park system helped pull the entire country out of the Great Depression and how lucky we are here in Georgia !

Our group plans to do some much needed maintenance work at the park - but nothing too tough ! (Parkwide trash pick-up, trail maintenance, removal of non-native invasive plants. Cleaning out of recycle trailer)

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ! You will be helping this beautiful place and it's small, hard working staff SO much !

(P.S. -garbage bags, gloves, water and snacks will be provided)

Door prizes will be given out at 12 noon

BUT PLEASE - IF YOU DON'T PLAN TO ATTEND THIS MEETUP - GET ONLINE AND CHECK OUT THE OTHER GREAT WONDERFUL STATE PARKS WE HAVE - AND GET OUT THERE THE MORNING OF 9/28 AND LEND A HAND TO SOME GA STATE PARK PLEASE ! (in this time of cutbacks we have seen many rangers let go - and even some park visitor centers closed as to make them self service ... so they really need the help now)

(Other parks you could help on your own might be: Unicoi State Park, Vogel State Park, Providence Canyon State Park, Cloudland Canyon State Park, Panola State Park, Blackrock State Park, Tallulah Gorge State Park, High Falls State Park, Hard Labor State Park, Sweetwater Creek State Park, Chatahoochee Bend State Park,FD Roosevelt State Park,Fort Mountain State Park, Fort Yargo State Park,Magnolia Springs State Park.)
