The Savannah Tree Foundation has been working with its partner, the City of Savannah, to help install back-country style natural walking trails in Bacon Park Forest. According to a press release:picture-2

“We’ve been working with the city on developing natural walking trails at Bacon Park Forest for years,” said Diane Houston, President of the Savannah Tree Foundation.  “While this day marks the beginning of the trail installation process, it’s also the culmination of a great deal of time spent by our organization and staff from the city’s Leisure Services Bureau to develop the concept and design.  This is a great moment for all of us.”

And volunteers are needed on Saturday, June 6 from 9 a.m. until noon:

Volunteers should wear long sleeves shirts, pants and close?toed shoes with socks, and should bring work gloves, bypass pruners and pruning shears if they have them.  Refreshments, community service hours, tools and T?shirts will be provided.  Onsite parking is available near the intersection of Skidaway Road and Bonna Bella Drive.
