Call for Volunteers!

Please come join the Rabun Chapter on Thursday, April 27 for a stream conservation project. We will be working under the supervision of the US Forest Service and GA Department of Natural Resources to construct new stream structures and perform maintenance on existing stream structures in Reed and Heddon Creeks. We will meet at 8:30 am at the “Double Bit” dispersed camping area, located alongside Reed Creek just off the Burrells Ford Road.

Directions to the work project:
From Clayton, GA take Warwoman Road (next to Ingles) approximately 13 miles to the intersection with GA Hwy 28.
Turn right onto GA Hwy 28 and go approximately 1.7 to Burrells Ford Road (FS Road 646) on your left.
Turn left onto Burrells Ford Road. This road is a fairly well-maintained gravel road. Go approximately 5 miles to a woods road on your left. This road will be marked with a TU sign.
Turn left onto this woods road and go 100 yards to the parking area. This woods road is rough and there is a shallow ford in the road. You may also park on the Burrells Ford Road and walk to the work project along the woods road.
Contact Tammy Hopton, Rabun Chapter Prez, at if you need more information.
