Join our Facebook group and learn about local meet-ups
Our group, dubbed the “North Georgia Ecology Club”, is currently looking for places to explore and help document local species of plants, animals and more. Let us know if you have a property or know of a place! We are looking for different ecosystems such as field/meadow, riverbank, high elevations, bogs, mature forest and yards. Email [email protected] for more information.
