Adopt A Spot!
Eagle Scout Project: Troop 797, Marietta, GA
Rock Harbor Nature Preserve. Putnam County, Georgia
The purpose of the Adopt A Spot! program is to create community involvement on the site, improve the beauty of the site and positively impact the conservation values of the site. It is an opportunity to further the public usage and benefit of the tract.
The basic idea is that a person or organization can claim a small area of the nature preserve and enhance it. Because the program involves allowing for “ownership” of an area there are few rules or guidelines. The expectation is that the “spots” will be augmented with items such as flowers, shrubs, bird houses, benches, and nature-based art. This is the trial project of this program so some changes will likely come as we learn from this new experience.
