Your State Parks Day: Panola Mountain

Come out and enjoy Panola Mountain! The weather is perfect and parking is free in honor of Your State Parks Day. Even better, two fantastic volunteer events are ready for your helping hands.

Parking for the volunteer events will be at the Alexander Lake parking area, at the intersection of Flat Bridge Road and Alexander Lake Road. All volunteers will receive a free T-shirt, while supplies last. Volunteer names will also be entered into a drawing for door prizes.

Wildflower Planting 9 a.m. to noon
GA DNR’s Phil Delestrez will be leading a native wildflower planting in the 150 plus acre grassland restoration area at Panola Mountain State Park near Stockbridge. All the wildflowers are Georgia stock, from seed collected within 100 miles of the park. Volunteers are needed to help with this unique project and children are welcome. Tools will be provided, as will a water source for the plantings. The planting will last from about 9 a.m. to noon.

Those wanting to take part should bring gloves, snacks, sunscreen, bug spray and a visored hat. Bottled water and sandwiches, provided with the assistance of Chick-Fil-A, will be provided for participants.

Rivers Alive South River Cleanup 8 a.m. to noon

    Had a good time working with the young people in the boy scouts and another group of kids. Not sure if anyone else was there from the meetup, but there were plenty of volunteers overall.
