Join Savannah Tree Foundation members and friends, Hands on Savannah volunteers and the Georiga Conservancy for a morning of fun, comraderie and enjoying Savannah’s urban forest! Volunteers will continue invasive species removal and trail maintenance & cleaning work on natural walking trails in Bacon Park Forest.

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 and tools will be provided.

Bacon Park Forest is a 50+ acre unique, urban, forest that was once slated to become a set of soccer fields. Through a grassroots advocacy campaign, the Savannah Tree Foundation helped convince Savannah’s City Council and Chatham County Commission to preserve the park as a passive use natural resource. Come see the large live oaks in this mixed hardwood forest.
