Get ready to get a little dirty and have some fun while pitching in to keep Piedmont Park beautiful!
This volunteer experience is a great way to make new friends, explore Piedmont Park, and work alongside Piedmont Park Conservancy staff to care for the park’s diverse plant communities and habitats. Projects are based on the current needs of the park. Typical projects include planting, weeding, spreading mulch or pine straw, removal of invasive plant species and so much more!
Volunteers will meet at the Piedmont Park Conservancy’s administrative office which is located across from Magnolia Hall, just outside the 1st floor park entrance of the parking garage shared by Piedmont Park and Atlanta Botanical Garden. To access the parking garage, enter via the Atlanta Botanical Garden main entrance (1345 Piedmont Avenue, Atlanta, GA, 30309) or from Monroe Drive (1320 Monroe Dr., NE, Atlanta, GA 30306). For additional directions to the park, please follow this link http://www.piedmontpark.org/visit/park_map.html.
