FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — This year’s class of Leadership Forsyth will open a new self-guided interpretive trail.

This event’s ribbon-cutting ceremony takes place at 10 a.m. May 10 at Caney Creek Preserve, west of the intersection of Caney Road and Brookwood Road in Forsyth County.

Working in conjunction with the University of Georgia, Forsyth County Parks and Recreation Department and Leadership Forsyth’s Board of Directors, the class built a self-guided interpretive trail to teach about the importance of local watershed and other flora located at Caney Creek Preserve.

The 63-acre Caney Creek Preserve features walking trails, a dog park, two pavilions, a natural amphitheater and a playground.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony is open to the public.

Representatives of Forsyth County government, the city of Cumming, University of Georgia and the Parks and Recreation Department, as well as numerous sponsors that helped make this project possible, plan to attend.

The Leadership Forsyth class receives training and serves to inspire a network of emerging leaders through an educational experience that increases all participants’ knowledge, awareness of community institutions and involvement with community leaders, volunteers and resources.
