Join our next Hike:

All Around Little Cranberry - For all ages!
Saturday, July 26th
10am until a little after noon

Little Cranberry Lake holds a rich convergence of habitat with bog islands, rocky shore and mixed forest surrounding. This is beaver, river otter, raven, and alligator lizard terrain. July brings forth a multitude of berries and deep green growth. Learn all about this amazing place and enjoy a challenging hike for all ages. Take Georgia south off of Oakes and follow up to the ACFL road, take a right and follow to the parking lot.

About the Friends

The Friends of the Forest is a non-profit citizens organization dedicated to the preservation of the ACFL through education, outreach, and stewardship. We first formed in 1986 to "preserve, protect, and enjoy" our community forest. Our group was instrumental in the successful effort to halt revenue logging in the ACFL, and essential to the creation and promotion of a system to provide long term legal preservation of the forest.  We welcome all who share in our mission.
