Thursday, December 20, 2018 (8 am – 12:00 pm): After 2 rainouts, Trees Atlanta and the Atlanta Memorial Park Conservancy have rescheduled the last Forest Restoration Project of the year – planting a mix of 1-3 gallon trees (100 total) in Memorial Park where we have spent months removing invasive plants (privet, kudzu, etc…).
If you are available next Thursday morning, December 20, please join us to plant these trees. The larger 15 gallon trees (20 total) will be planted on January 26, 2019. Children are welcome – anyone under the age of 16, however, needs to be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Children can help loosen the root balls of the trees, fill the holes back in, and help water and mulch the trees.
Come for an hour or stay until the last tree is planted (we’re hoping to be wrapped up by noon). Thank you in advance for being a part of our collective effort to add trees back to Atlanta Memorial Park!
Saturday, January 26, 2019: Join AMPC and Trees Atlanta green t-shirt volunteer and certified tree keeper, Aaron Bose, for our first forest restoration volunteer day of the year from 9 am to noon. We are excited to announce that on this day we will be planting trees in the area where we have been removing invasive plants the last several months along the park’s edge. Please wear long-sleeve shirts, long pants, and closed-toe shoes for the work day. Trees Atlanta will provide tools and gloves. Email email@example.com to let us know that you can join us!
The Department of Watershed Management has re-opened Wesley Drive between Wellesley Drive and Riada Drive. The road will need to be closed once more in January 2019 to finish the re-lining of the 96″ main sewer line that runs through the park.
