Please join ForestWatch on Saturday, April 29th, from 2-5 pm at the Sautee Nacoochee Center for an afternoon of fellowship, music, food, drink and fun. It's a day to celebrate our forests! 

Dr. Joan Maloof, founder of the  Old-Growth Forest Network, will be speaking and signing her new book, Nature's Temples: The Complex World of Old-Growth Forests.

Festivities include:
  • Two pre-event hikes; Jess Riddle, our Forest Ecologist, will lead an old-growth hike, and local naturalist and longtime ForestWatcher, Jim Sullivan, will lead a spring wildflower hike on Yonah Mountain Trail. Hike participants will meet at the Sautee Nacoochee Center at 10:00 am.
  • Native Plant Sale
  • Appetizers, wine and beer
  • Raffle and silent auction
  • Live music provided by Joanne Steele and Walter Daves and his band
  • Attendees may also want to visit the Sautee Nacoochee Center's Folk Pottery Museum or the Sparkle and Shine Show at the Center Gallery.
Proceeds from this event support our work to preserve, protect, and restore Georgia's national forests, and besides, it's just fun to get together once in a while!
