Join the Vegetarian Society of Georgia for a Humane Thanksgiving
“Supper & Service” on Saturday, November 24!
We will gather for a vegan potluck lunch at 11 a.m. at
Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature
Preserve before going just down the road to the
AWARE Wildlife Center to take a
tour, deliver much-needed supplies and do simple hands-on service
projects. AWARE stands for Atlanta Wild Animal Rescue Effort, and they
are a vital resource for injured and orphaned animals year-round.
Please bring a vegan stew, casserole, salad or dessert; VSG will
provide plates, bowls, cups, utensils, cider and water (you may bring
other non-alcoholic drinks if you like).
We would also like to encourage donations of supplies and/or food for
the AWARE animals Click here to

Lunch will be held the Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve at
3787 Klondike Road, Lithonia, GA. Directions:

Follow the exit ramp straight until you pass the Dairy Queen and then
Go straight ahead for 1 mile to the dead end and turn right onto
Luncheon: Go one mile to Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature
Preserve at 3787 Klondike Road (on the right). This is the north
parking lot for Davidson-Arabia Mountain. We’ll eat in the nature
AWARE : From the luncheon, continue another mile to AWARE at
4158 Klondike Road (on the left). AWARE is in the back of the
Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve south parking lot.
We will take a tour of the facility at 1 p.m. to see a variety of
animals being treated for release, and some resident animals as well.
AWARE takes in all species of native Georgia animals for
rehabilitation and release, and through its Peaceful Coexistence
Campaign works to educate the public about the futility of trapping
and killing wildlife as a method of human-animal conflict management
in urban settings.
If you can, please stay after the tour to do some hands-on helping at
the center; wear appropriate outdoor clothes/shoes and bring work
gloves as well as bottled water for yourself. The work session will
start at 2 p.m., and you can stay as late as 5 p.m. Children are
welcome as long as they are supervised by an adult. (This is a great
opportunity for students to get community service hours for school,
RSVP is requested by Nov. 21 to
