Reynolds Nature Preserve’s annual Wild Azalea Festival will be held this Saturday, Apr. 6, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., and the Clayton State University Biology Department will be playing a major role, taking part in three service learning projects.
The Wild Azalea Festival will be held at the Reynolds Nature Preserve, 5665 Reynolds Rd., in Morrow. Participants will be able to enjoy guided hikes, live animal shows, nature center exhibits, face painting, native azalea showcases, hands-on workshops, informational booths from local environmental organizations and more. The “more” part also includes ClaytonState faculty and students participating in service learning projects.
The three projects include Dr. Barbara Musolf and Tri Beta members providing educational material about invasive plants, Dr. Christopher Kodani and students presenting an adopt-a-spring protocol, and Dr. Jere Boudell doing a presentation on stream restoration. In addition, Budell’s SEEDS students will discuss ecology and ecological issues.
This event is free and a shuttle service will be provided from BabbMiddle School to the Nature Preserve.
