Volunteer Opportunity: Invasive Plant Pull at The Confluence

Saturday, June 25, 2016

9:00-11:00 AM,

The Confluence, accessed at the terminus of Armand Road off of Lindbergh Drive, Atlanta

 

Atlanta Audubon Society needs volunteers to assist with an invasive plant pull and habitat restoration day at The Confluence Park, where the north and south forks of Peachtree Creek meet near Lindbergh. The Confluence is one of two habitat restoration sites designated on Atlanta Audubon’s National Fish and Wildlife Foundation 5-Star Grant. As part of this effort, Atlanta Audubon and it’s many partners have been removing invasive toxic species, planting native species, building and wildlife blind, and conducting avian surveys.

 

Volunteers are needed to help remove invasive plants, check on recently planted native species, spread wood chips on trails, and clear other brush. Groups are welcome! For more information or to volunteer, email Adam Betuel at Adam@atlantaaudubon.org.

 


 

Latino Conservation Week, July 16-24, 2016

 

Latino Conservation Week: Disfrutando y Conservando Nuestra Tierra is an initiative of Hispanic Access Foundation (HAF), a national nonprofit that works to improve the lives of Hispanics in the United States and promotes civic engagement by educating, motivating, and helping them to access trustworthy support systems. HAF created and is leading the first Latino Conservation Week to support the Latino community getting into the outdoors and participating in activities to protect our natural resources. During this week, Latino community and faith-based organizations will go on hiking or camping outings, learn about conservation efforts in their community, and show their support for permanently protecting our land, water, and air.
