Friends of Amicalola Falls members are hard at work making a difference for their favorite site. Volunteers are coming from far and wide to lend a hand accomplishing much-needed projects and having a great time in the process. Friends volunteer and Master Gardner, Bob Putman, has volunteered his time and talents pruning and weeding the landscaping at Amicalola Falls.
Another volunteer, Liz Martin, drove from her Tennessee home to spend time cleaning the offices, creating a brighter atmosphere for the staff. Friends John Thomas and Arliss Brigman repaired the rail fence in the campground and entire teams of Friends volunteers recently worked on trail maintenance, beautifying various areas of the park.
Not only are individuals making a huge difference at Amicalola, but various groups have been stepping up to show their support as well. Daisy Scout Troop #11402 from Canton, Georgia, Girl Scout Troop #8298 from Acworth, Georgia, Cub Pack #254, and Scout Troop #254 all stepped in to have a day of volunteering and fun!
