Take a walk in the woods, combat alien invaders on Saturday, Dec. 10

Twenty-five volunteers are needed this Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon to help with invasive species removal and trail maintenance and cleaning work on the natural walking trails in Bacon Park Forest. Volunteers will learn about the environmental and economic benefits of urban forests and native and non-native species. Here are the details of this important mission:

Volunteers should be sure to wear long sleeved shirts, long pants and closed-toe shoes with socks to help protect from sun, bugs and plants, and may bring work gloves, bypass pruners and pruning shears if they have them. Refreshments, community service hours, gloves and tools will be provided. Please park at the east end of the shopping center parking lot at 2150 Bonna Bella Ave. For more information call 912-233-8733 or visit the Savannah Tree Foundation website.
