South Bend Park Stewardship

February 27 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Eco-A joins Friends of South Bend Park and Sustainable Lakewood in new efforts to restore this special 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, songbirds 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 on 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, February 27 will focus on native and non-native species ID recap, and woody invasive shrub ID and removal training. We’ll include a list of native shrubs that are healthy replacements for invasives as well.

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

This event is sponsored in part by the National Fish and Wildlife Federation 5-Star Program.
