Thank you for your interest in the 2018 Athens MLK Day of Service! Below you will find details about the Day of Service and this specific project.
Kick-off Celebration: 8:30AM - 9:30AM at the Clarke Central High School gymnasium (350 S. Milledge Avenue).
Volunteer Shift: 10:00AM - 1:00PM at the Beech Haven Tract (parking available at 2390 W. Broad St).
Volunteers will aid in the ongoing restoration of the Beech Haven Tract, a 100-acre plot of land that has been largely undisturbed since 1911. Volunteer work will include planting 600 trees, and removing invasive plant species.
Children under 18 should be registered by their parent/guardian.
We are not able to accommodate large group registrations. If you have a group that would like to volunteer at the same site, each individual must separately register through Engage Georgia.

Work at this site requires navigating moderate slopes and off-trail terrain. Volunteers should also be comfortable walking long distances (approx. 1 mile).
|Perks||First 300 volunteers at the kickoff get biscuits and t-shirts!|
|Parking Details||Volunteers will meet at the Clarke Central High School gym at 8:30am for the kick-off event and then carpool to the Beech Haven Baptist Church parking lot around 9:30am. Please park in the very back of the church|
