SOUTH FORSYTH — The Forsyth County Master Naturalists are celebrating Earth Day with an event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Big Creek Greenway trailhead at Fowler Park.
“We’ll have an information booth, and we’ve got a new project coming up that has to do with recycling, so we’ll be talking about some of the projects that we do in the county,” said Heather Kolich with the group.
The event will feature giveaways, information and special activities.
“One of the options is people can wander the greenway with a Master Naturalist,” Kolich said. “A tag team of two Master Naturalists will walk down the trail with groups of five to 10 people and point out to them some of the projects we’ve been doing.”
The projects include a bluebird trail, interpretive tree trail and an educational kiosk. Tours will leave every 15 minutes.
The Master Naturalists are part of an extension program with the University of Georgia.
“It’s community education,” she said. “Our mission is to bring research based information that is developed at the university out to all the people so they can actually put it to use to improve their quality of life.”
The trailhead is at 4110 Carolene Way.
