Second Saturday Volunteer Day – August 10

Roll up your sleeves and help Freedom Park Conservancy spruce up the park for all to enjoy! Each month we will tackle a necessary project such as planting flowers, mulching, removing invasives, or pruning.

On Saturday, August 10th beginning at 8:30am we will gather at the corner of North Avenue and Candler Park Drive to tackle several projects including creating a path through the Bird and Butterfly Garden.

There will be bugs and there will be dirt, so plan accordingly. Please wear closed-toe shoes, sunscreen, and bring water. Gloves and bags will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own if you have a preference.

Announcing Second Saturday Volunteer Days!

Freedom Park is one of the largest public parks in the city of Atlanta, and it takes an army to keep it looking its best!

It’s our duty to contribute to the upkeep of our public spaces, so beginning in June, Freedom Park Conservancy will host a monthly volunteer work day on the second Saturday of the month.

You can see upcoming volunteer dates and projects on our events page by clicking here, or join our volunteer list to receive email alerts about upcoming work days.

Let’s do this!
