Fayette: Line Creek Nature Area Clean-Up Feb 13th

Join your friends and neighbors on Saturday February 13th to help improve the trails at Line Creek Nature Area, a popular nature preserve in Fayette County .

Southern Conservation Trust is hosting a Volunteer Work Day at Line Creek Nature Center in Peachtree City, off Highway 54 at the Coweta County line.

The 70 acre Nature Preserve features a stocked fishing pond and dock, a picnic area, granite outcroppings, and several miles of both easy and challenging trails that allow access to Line Creek.

Volunteers will block eroded trails, clear new trails, and move fallen trees.

“Public greenspace like the Line Creek preserve make Fayette County a wonderful place to live.
This Work Day is a great way for the community to come together, have fun, and improve a unique natural area” said Trust Executive Director Abby Jordan.

Southern Conservation Trust is a Fayette County-based conservation nonprofit that owns, manages and protects 1400 acres of farms, forests and environmentally sensitive land in the Southern Crescent. The Trust hosts environmental programs and enhances its preserves with trails, overlooks and re-introduction of native species.

As a regional land trust the Trust works with willing landowners to permanently protect open space that benefits the community and can offer tax benefits for the landowner.

The Line Creek Work Day is Saturday February 13th, noon – 4 p.m., weather permitting.
Volunteers should bring work gloves and wear hiking shoes. Helpful tools to bring: loppers, garden rake, hatchet or ax, shovel, garden hoe, gas blower, and chain saw.

Refreshments will be provided.

Volunteers should sign up in advance at 770-486-7774 or email info@sctlandtrust.org. For directions: www.sctlandtrust.org.

If weather is questionable, call 770-486-7774 after 9am on Friday February 12th to learn if Work Day will be re-scheduled.
