Join your friends and neighbors on Saturday, Feb. 27 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.

“The big snowstorm forced us to re-schedule – we hope lots of folks will come out to help fix the trails at Line Creek.” said Trust Executive Director Abby Jordan. El Reposo Mexican Restaurant in Peachtree City will provide snacks for volunteers.

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.

The Line Creek Work Daywill last from 12-4 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.

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 9 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 26 to learn if Work Day will be re-scheduled.
