Springvale Park Forest Restoration

Help remove invasive plants from Inman Park’s crown jewel, emerald-green Springvale Park. This project is best for ages 12 and up, children to be accompanied by an adult. No prior experience is necessary – we’ll provide tools and teach you what to do. Physical activity such as bending, sawing/snipping, and lifting is required. Meet in the park near the corner of Edgewood Avenue and Waverly Way.

Freedom Park Shade Tree Planting

Help plant trees in Freedom Park to shade and cool the path, clean our air, reduce stormwater runoff, dampen noise, and provide habitat for critters. No prior experience is necessary — we’ll provide instruction and tools. All ages welcome, though children should be accompanied by an adult. Physical activity is required: digging, bending, lifting, etc. Meet in Freedom Park near the intersection of Sinclair Avenue and Austin Avenue.

Date and Time TBD
Installation in New Stormwater Planters

This activity is best for ages 12 and up, with children to be accompanied by an adult. Physical activity is required: filling and lifting buckets of mulch, walking, etc. The meeting place for this project is TBD, though in past years it’s been along Euclid Avenue at the Poplar Circle section of Freedom Park, near the intersection of Hurt Street and Euclid Avenue.
