We need your help! 

Did you know several Brookhaven Parks contain old growth forest dating back to the the days when all of Brookhaven and metro Atlanta was owned by the Muscogee creek Nation? 

 

Today our natural landscapes are threatened by invasive species, but using chemical treatments and indiscriminate clearing only further harms fragile ecosystems.

 

 

 

 

So let’s do it right – join your friends and neighbors to safely remove invasive species to restore park health. 

 

 

 

 

You’ll learn about the special quality of Brookhaven Parks, including their trees, wildlife, rare species and how to identify old growth forest remnants — which might even be found in your back yard! 

 

You also have the opportunity to train with us and become a Brookhaven Parks Steward and teach others!

Get outdoors, get a little exercise, have some fun and help your neighborhood park!
