In September, the U.S. Forest Service, partnering organizations and volunteers will host a number of volunteer service events across Georgia’s national forests in celebration of National Public Lands Day. Participants will join a coast-to-coast effort on Saturday, September 29 when more than 170,000 people are scheduled to come together at more than 2,000 sites in all 50 states to donate their time and effort to improving the public lands they enjoy every day. Nine separate volunteer events on the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests this month include maintaining and improving trails, installing signs and fencing, and working to prevent the loss of hemlock trees.
