The Macon Symphony Youth Orchestra will join with Beulahland’s Chosen Generation Children’s Choir and the Youth with Voices Choir for the free concert at 5 p.m. Saturday. The program will conclude with musicians leading the audience in familiar Christmas carols.

The north campus of Beulahland Bible Church is located at 1010 Newberg Ave. in Macon.

Fort Valley conservancy receives grant

Blue Heron Lake Nature Conservancy has received a $500 grant from the Community Foundation of Central Georgia.

The money, along with other donations, will go toward a down payment on an outdoor classroom gazebo, which costs about $6,000, according to a news release. The nature conservancy offers field trips to schools in Middle Georgia and works with Peach County Family Connection to bring inner city children to the conservancy as a form of ecotherapy.

The conservancy will hold a First Day Hike on Jan. 1 in cooperation with Georgia Interfaith Power and Light. The hike will be 10 a.m.-4 p.m. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to walk all the trails, but some sections can be walked in as little as 15 minutes. The Blue Heron Lake Nature Conservancy is at 257 Norwood Springs Road, Fort Valley.
