Together Again — ForestWatch Fall Retreat 2021
By Sue Harmon, Board Member
Foothills Landscape Project – J. D. McCrary, Executive Director
More than 90 Georgia ForestWatch members and friends gathered on October 9 at the Lake Winfield Scott Pavilion to celebrate the work we’ve done, learn about the work yet to be done, and welcome our new Executive Director, J.D. McCrary. The bright fall day provided breezes and sunshine for a variety of hikes and activities, including botany rambles, tree identification, herbal plants, Native American plant use, forest history, and relaxing paddles on the lake. The sandwiches were catered, and we certainly missed our usual homemade food fare, but at least we were able to be together outside in the open air. Dozens of folks worked together to make this event happen. Once again, it’s our volunteers that are the heart of Georgia ForestWatch.
