Upcoming events and volunteer days
Walking Tour with Trees Atlanta: Atlanta Memorial Park – March 2023 date coming soon!
Join us for a walking tour with Leslie Edwards, co-author of “The Natural Communities of Georgia“, as we explore the westside of Atlanta Memorial Park, where Peachtree Creek winds through an urban forest with large trees that are nearly a century old. We will focus on the history of the park in conjunction with its trees and why they are vital to people and wildlife. The extensive restoration work of Trees Atlanta and the Atlanta Memorial Park Conservancy will be highlighted throughout. Meeting place will be the playground at 651 Wesley Drive NW. The link to register will go live in the new year and can be accessed here.
Forest Restoration Volunteer Days – the 2nd Saturday of every month from 9 am to noon
Make a difference in our community by caring for our forest. Activities include removing invasive plants such as English ivy, Chinese privet, and kudzu from Atlanta Memorial Park. Our goal is to promote a healthy plant community and a sustainable forest in this special greenspace.
