Work will include gardening and basic landscaping such as removing invasive plants, pruning overgrown trees and shrubs, picking up litter and mulching. Not only will you be helping to restore and beautify this well-visited park, but you will be engaging the community of Atlanta while doing so by working alongside the locals of Park Pride.
