Sandy Springs renews pact with Lost Corner Friends

The Sandy Springs City Council has renewed an agreement with The Friends of Lost Corner to have the group continue to be a steward to the Lost Corner Nature Preserve.

“Lost Corner has benefited greatly by the efforts of FOLC over the last five years,” Michael Perry, director of recreation and parks, said in a memo to the council. “FOLC provides stewardship to this historically relevant and unique 24-acre piece of property through funding, community involvement, volunteers and support.”

The current agreement took effect in March 2013 and expires Dec. 31. The new agreement runs from Jan. 1 through June 30, 2018, and has five automatic one-year renewal periods.

Lost Corner is at 7300 Brandon Mill Road. The Friends, a nonprofit organization, has hosted park clean-up days, eradicated invasive plant species, raised funds for park improvements, and sponsored recreation programs. It also manages the community garden and advertises recreation programs and park services on its website and in social media.
