Mountain Way Park Clean-Up Rules and Guidelines
Here are a few simple guidelines for removing invasive species and protecting the creek during clean-up and restoration days:
Thank you – this is a very important project to this community and there is simply no money in our city budget for these types of projects; without your help this would never happen.
For background information on protecting the riparian buffer, see this memorandum reviewing the State of Georgia and City of Atlanta guidelines.

There are lots of fun ways to get involved and get to know your neighbors better, including:
Clean Up and Restoration Days
There's much to be done. We need help picking up trash and removing debris, removing invasive species and managing the native plants we want to protect, as well as installing signage and other amenities to help visitors to the Common. We conduct several workdays throughout the year to focus our volunteer efforts.
If you will be helping with a site Clean Up or Restoration day, please complete this Release Form and bring it with you.
Park Clean Up Captains Wanted
Volunteers are key to successful work days, and to help with these efforts, we need Volunteer Captains who will help supervise the efforts of our volunteers. Hands on training will be provided to Captains to give them instructions on the work that needs to be done and how best to guide our volunteers. If you are interested, please click on the Volunteer link to register and indicate you want to be a Captain.
If you're interested in helping Friends of Mountain Way Common raise funds to help support design, implementation and maintenance activities, let us know. The Friends are looking for people to help with a variety of events and initiatives and need help in a wide variety of ways. Join our Volunteer list to get involved.
