South Bend Park Stewardship

January 23 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Eco-A joins Friends of South Bend Park and Sustainable Lakewood in new efforts to restore this special Atlanta park located in South Atlanta near the Lakewood Amphitheatre. 

Each South Bend Park Stewardship event features educational as well as volunteer activities. We’ll learn about the special features of the urban forest found in the park, including key tree species, edible seeds and fruits, song birds and raptors, wildlife, and indicator plants as well as the invasive species that threaten the health of our park’s forests. Each event also includes a volunteer opportunity to help restore the park’s landscape.

Stewardship event attendees will become experts about the natural values of South Bend Park, and will be trained to share their knowledge and skills with friends and family as well as lead other groups of volunteers. 

Our Stewardship event Saturday, January 23 will focus on our regional watershed, including the importance of the South River, and we’ll cover some winter tree and invasive species ID and best removal methods, along with a hands-on invasive species removal project.


Note: Space is limited and preferences are made for neighborhood residents, leaders and pre-registered South Bend Park Eco-A Stewardship participants.
