Georgia ForestWatch

Georgia ForestWatch exists to preserve, protect and restore the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests. We are the collective voice of hundreds of people just like you, who want to make sure our children’s grandchildren have healthy natural forests to enjoy.



Along with joining Georgia ForestWatch, there are many ways to volunteer with us to ensure that our public lands are restored and protected. Do you enjoy working on projects with like-minded people? Do you love to hike through the national forests and wish that you could share your experience? Do you have some extra time that you would like to give back to your forest community? Read on to learn about the various people who are central to GFW and other ways that you can give—we couldn’t do it without you!



Office Volunteers: About 10 times each year we open our Ellijay office, located in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains, to this wonderful group that helps us to assemble our large-scale mailings—and have fun doing it!

Event Volunteers: Our Spring Wild and Wooly event and Fall Retreat could not happen without a great number of individuals who assist with planning, food coordination and preparation, and event setup and cleanup. This is a group that ensures our unique events are engaging, enjoyable, and memorable.

Hike Leaders: All ForestWatch hikes are led by knowledgeable volunteers who plan diverse and enjoyable ways to get out and experience our National Forests. Do you have trails to share?

District Leaders: These volunteers are the ‘eyes and ears’ of ForestWatch, who assist our Forest Ecologist by observing the activities in their local national forest district. The District Leaders meet every other month, monitor and compose notes from the field, write comments on proposed projects, and represent ForestWatch in a myriad of other ways. This is a great way to learn the more technical side of Forest-Watching.

Miscellaneous Projects: Throughout the year ForestWatch has various needs and short-term projects. At this time we are looking for assistance with a new outdoor sign for our office and new places to distribute our newsletter!

If you would like more information on any of these volunteer opportunities or would like to discuss how you can get more involved with Georgia ForestWatch, please call Wayne at 706-635-8733 or e-mail wayne@gafw.org.

Park Pride – Atlanta, GA

Group / Corporate Volunteering   

Have a group that’s not afraid to get a little dirty?  Park Pride has coordinated hundreds of group volunteer projects—corporate groups, college groups, church and other nonprofit groups.  Communities in Atlanta are greatly improved every year by volunteers who spend a few hours sprucing up a park.  Please contact John Ahern for more information 404-546-6854 .

  • Individual / LEAD Volunteering    



    By training volunteers to learn how to go lead other groups, the impact we can collectively have on park improvements is exponential.  So, we offer the Lead Volunteer Program as a way of increasing our ability to maintain a healthy and sustainable urban forest within Atlanta’s parks.  Lead Volunteers experience many benefits of the two-hour training and have the know-how to improve Atlanta’s parks.  This makes for more “park improvement troops” on the ground—which means better parks all around!
