Plant Savers and Rescues
As Forsyth County continues its rapid development, there are
sometimes forgotten victims: native plants.
Why We Do It
These indigenous plants disappear along with the trees as wooded
acreage gets cleared for new housing developments and commercial
establishments. Master Gardeners are able to help save native plants destined
for destruction by joining the Georgia Native Plant Society and participating
in Scheduled Plant Rescues.
By doing this, native plants can be relocated to native
plant gardens at Sawnee Mountain Preserve and the Bookworm Shade Garden for all
citizens to enjoy.
If you know of an area with at-risk plants that you would like to
see rescued, please contact the Georgia Native Plant Society
To Relocate Your Plants
If you have plants at your home that you would like to have
relocated off your property contact Forsyth County Extension Office
