Maclay Gardens Native Arboretum Workday

TorreyaKeepers Update

Atlanta Botanical Gardens coming in January

ABG is in the process of finalizing their plans to return to Torreya State Park during the middle of January to do some drone work and locate Torreya trees. They intend to do a follow-up trip around the end of the month to work on removing debris and taking cuttings from the Torreya trees for propagation. There may some opportunities to volunteer to assist with this work during a probable time frame of January 25 - February 8.
