HemlockFest is one of the largest grassroots efforts for saving Hemlock trees, re-introducing the American Chestnut and keeping our waterways clean. A group of dedicated volunteers organize and manage the festival; we are the Lumpkin Coalition, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization supporting quality of life issues in North Georgia.
Saving the Hemlocks could have a significant impact on our environment. The Hemlocks are beautiful evergreen trees that not only help purify our rivers and streams and maintain water temperatures, but also provide shelter and food for birds and other animals. We are honored that you will be a part of this GREAT CAUSE!! Any donation you give will go toward SAVING THE HEMLOCKS.
