Calling all Gardeners! Tomorrow at your State Park

Tomorrow on Saturday, September 25th all across Georgia, State Parks are celebrating  “Your State Parks Day” by planting pollinator gardens!

We can’t think of a better way to spend a fall day, so grab your shovel and work gloves and help the Friends of Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites plant over 40 pollinator gardens across the state!

Check here to see what pollinator activities are happening at your local State Park tomorrow, and join in on fun events such as lectures, hands-on garden building, and rim trail clean ups. You may even pick up some new tips for your pollinator garden.

Lend a hand and save a pollinator!


Bat conservation project

Join the league of volunteers who help collect scientific data for conservation projects across Georgia. The state is currently looking for volunteers to help with a national bat acoustic program run by The Georgia Departartment of Natural Resources wildlife division.

The project requires you to monitor bat populations twice a year with an acoustic tool known as “anabat” across a 30-mile transect.

Detailed instructions on volunteering for the conservation project can be found at the GA DNR website
