Support National Public Lands Day at Paynes Prairie


Help us remove trash like this and restore native habitat within Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park 


Saturday, September 24, 2016

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM Noon

Meet us at the southern end of SE 43rd Terrace

All ages are welcome


We will be working in an area of the preserve not located within a public park entrance, so please note the location details included below.    


This area is located off of SR 20, near Newnans Lake, and has accumulated lots of garbage over time.  Park staff has begun restoration of this area, but they need your help.   


RSVP on this website so we can contact you with additional instructions or updates.


Wear full shoes and dress for work in the woods.  Bring a water bottle.  We will have a cooler of water to refill your bottle and light snacks available.  Garbage bags will be provided for the trash, which park staff will haul away after the event.  Long pants, bug spray, and gloves are recommended. 


The work site is located at the southern end of SE 43rd Terrace, in East Gainesville, off SR 20.  SE 43rd Terrace is located between the Sherriff's Office on SR 20 and Newnan's Lake.  Turn down SE 43rd Terrace and follow it until it ends/turns to the left and becomes another road.  At the end of 43rd Terrace you will see a simple park cable gate (which will be open).  Park along the roadside and enter through that gate. We will be waiting for you there.  See the map below.
