DUNWOODY, Ga. — The City of Dunwoody has invited the community to come together and give back during Volunteer Day on Saturday, Oct. 12 from 9 a.m. to noon.
Trees Atlanta and Painting with a Twist are partnering with Dunwoody Parks & Recreation to improve the city’s greenspace by planting trees and painting rocks.
“This is an important annual event that helps us keep our parks beautiful,” Dunwoody Parks & Recreation Director Brent Walker said. “We’re grateful that so many in our community want to do their part and make a difference.”
Though walk-up registration will be available the morning of the event, volunteers are asked to register in advance using this link: https://secure.rec1.com/GA/dunwoody-ga/catalog.
Check in will be near the Veterans Memorial building across from the Brook Run Park playground.
Volunteer Day projects include:
• Planting trees with Trees Atlanta at Perimeter Center East Park along the Dunwoody Trailway near the new pedestrian bridge. Volunteers are asked to park on the top level of the parking deck at 1455 Lincoln Parkway. Site location is 50 Perimeter Center East.
• Contributing to a rock painting art installation. Led by Painting with a Twist, volunteers of all ages will decorate rocks that will be placed throughout the park and along the Dunwoody Trailway. This is part of our celebration of Dunwoody Arts & Culture Month.
