Service Learning Saturdays @ the Outdoor Activity Center
This program facilitated by the West Atlanta Watershed Alliance and made possible by a grant from USDA Forest Service for our Atlanta Childrens Forest Network, provides the opportunity for youth 10 years and older to participate in meaningful activities encouraging conservation, stewardship and experiential learning on the second Saturday of every month (excluding January and July).
Activities include trail building and maintenance, invasive plant eradication, habitat restoration and other activities needed to manage the facility and grounds of this unique urban resource!
Sign in and orientation will begin promptly at 10:00 AM. Youth and youthful volunteers can earn up to 4 hours of community service each month. All activities will be supervised by an adult coordinator. Activities occur at the Outdoor Activity Center unless another location is specified in advance of the upcoming date. The OAC is accessible via MARTA. If students from Atlanta Public School System, who require 75 community service hours to progress to the next grade level, participate each month they can amass about half of the required hours of service. College Students and other groups are also welcome to participate!
