For our June Volunteer Project, the Brownieland Team volunteered with Piedmont Park Conservancy in honor of World Environment Day! Our volunteer team assisted with beautification projects for the two dog parks by trimming back overgrowth, along with picking up trash and old dog toys.

Each year more than 3,000 volunteers donate over 9,500 hours to enhancing and maintaining Piedmont Park for its more than 4 million annual visitors. Volunteers are essential members of the Piedmont Park community and critical to the success of the park and its programs. Volunteers make a dramatic difference in Piedmont Park by helping with ongoing restoration and preservation of the park, leading historic park tours, and by supporting the Conservancy’s programs and events. Piedmont Park Conservancy invites you to join them outside and pitch in to enhance and transform Atlanta’s favorite park.
Piedmont Park Conservancy has partnered with the city of Atlanta to enhance and preserve Piedmont Park for almost 30 years. In that time, the Conservancy has raised over $66 million in capital improvements such as planting new trees, preserving the Park’s historic buildings, adding the Legacy Fountain splash pad and much more to ensure that Piedmont Park remains a cultural and recreational resource for all Atlantans to use and enjoy. Additionally, the Conservancy raises more than $3 million per year to manage and enhance the Park and its programs. Some of the programs the Conservancy has offered this year are Green Market (seasonal farmer’s market), EnviroVentures summer camp, Yoga on the Promenade (free), Pull for Piedmont Park (evening volunteer/social event) and much more. Additionally, the Conservancy provides input on best management practices for Park events and festivals to help protect Piedmont Park and ensure a positive experience for all users.
