The following have been approved by the Scoutmaster, but transportation and supervision are to be provided by parents except for the Oak Grove BBQ and Eagle project workdays. Scouts should wear a Class B shirt and have someone from the organization sign a 3x5 card with the name of the organization and how many hours you worked. I have included websites for location and contact information. Please contact the parks to sign up for their updates since plans and conditions often change.
Eagle Project Workdays
We have a number of Life Scouts getting ready to start Eagle projects. We will announce these in the Newsletter, Remind and on the Troop's website.
Scoutmaster Approved (not Troop sponsored):
Parents are responsible for Scouts (including transportation and needed supervision). Scouts should wear a Class B shirt.
Team up with hundreds of passionate volunteers at more than 60 cleanup sites throughout the Chattahoochee River watershed – including, parks, creeks, and river access points from the headwaters in North Georgia, through metro Atlanta, and all the way down to Columbus!

Workdays are on the second Saturday of September, October, November, December, March, April, May, and June. We don't work when the weather is too hot or too cold. Email FrazierRoweParkfirstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Bring your own gloves and water and they'll have the tools and jobs to keep everyone busy. Please email Tom Branch at email@example.com to be added to their email list so you will have the most up-to-date information. Mr. Branch is also willing to work with Scouts individually or your patrol if you are looking for a service project or Eagle Project.
Workdays are typically the third Saturday of each month. Bring work gloves, rakes, shovels, and a wheelbarrow. Sign up for emails on their website to get notifications. Very nice people and they are always very appreciative of our service!

Please join us on our upcoming workdays. We will provide snacks, water, and tools. Bring your own work gloves if you have them. We've got invasives to remove, natives to plant, and structures to design and build (steps, kiosks, benches, and a few more bridges). We can accommodate most ages and abilities. Meet on the basketball court.
Alternative Projects & Workdays. If you'd like to volunteer your time and talent on different days or times, just let us know. And if you have project ideas, and other things you'd like to see done in the park - let us know that, too, and we can help figure out about making it happen.
Don't miss out on an opportunity to give back to greenspace this spring and summer!
Volunteer Projects are in action at Woodlands Garden and we welcome EVERYONE to join! Not only do volunteers help with essential, hands-on tasks like mulching which adds to the beauty of the Garden's trails, but they have a fun time connecting with each other in the great outdoors. Come give back to your local greenspace and meet some new Garden friends at the same time.
Next workday is February 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
