Training to Save the Hemlocks
On Saturday, Aug. 25 Save Georgia’s Hemlocks will offer a training class on how to save endangered hemlock t rees, a beautiful and important feature in our north Georgia communities. The event will be held at the Bent Tree Fireside Lounge, 40 Little Pine Mountain Rd. in Jasper from 10 a. m. to 3 p. m.
