Meet our New Outreach Coordinator!

We are excited to announce that Melanie Sparrow is Georgia Tree Council's new Outreach Coordinator. Melanie's role is to establish relationships with disadvantaged communities and assist them in receiving the community forestry resources they need such as those provided by Georgia Tree Council and its partners. The goal of the Outreach Coordinator position is to help create thriving urban forests in neighborhoods lacking the resources to establish and sustain healthy tree canopies.

Mel comes to the Georgia Tree Council with 10 years non-profit experience in water quality, local food movements and environmental education. In her spare time, she teaches yoga and spends time with her husband, dog and chickens. Welcome, Mel!
