SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Volunteers are helping with repairs and clean-up efforts at two state parks damaged when Hurricane Matthew raked the Georgia coast.

The Georgia Conservancy, working with state agencies, organized the volunteer recovery project Saturday at two parks in the Savannah area - Fort McAllister State Park and Skidaway Island State Park.

Participants planned to restore and repair campgrounds and nature trails, hoping to speed reopening of camping sites at the parks, which suffered damage when the storm hit three weeks ago.

The Georgia Conservancy says it will announce similar storm-damage recovery projects in the coming weeks at other state and national park sites on the coast that were hit hard by the hurricane.
