Scout Forest @ MWC

The new Scout Forest is just beginning at Mountain Way Common.  The 43 trees were planted on December 8, 2018, as a Trees Atlanta grant to support Matthew Keagle's efforts to achieve the Boy Scouts of America Conservation Award.  An additional 101 trees and shrubs were planted on March 9th. These trees were purchased with funds from a NEEF grant awarded to MWC
