WARNER ROBINS -- Organizers of a new nature center are looking for some more trailblazers.

The Warner Robins Nature Center & Botanical Gardens is seeking volunteers to help prepare its new hiking trails Saturday, a week before a festival and the center’s formal groundbreaking ceremony.

One of the organizers, Jim Taylor, said volunteers may spend much of their time tugging, pulling and carrying things at the site, which is located at 209 Elberta Road.

Taylor said volunteers should bring gardening tools and work gloves if they have them. Work is scheduled from 9 a.m. through the mid-afternoon.

The site is planned to include indoor and outdoor classroom spaces as well as walking trails.

Taylor said earlier this week that city residents have wanted more parks, more family-friendly activities and more revitalization of the north side of town.

“This is everything on a silver platter,” he said.
