The latest flooding on December 24, 2015 had a devastating effect on the banks along Peachtree Creek. Many sections of the creek banks had the vegetation washed away, leaving the banks exposed to further erosion. In other areas, sand was deposited along the banks covering the existing vegetation.  
In accordance with Phase I of our master plan and after consultation with Trees Atlanta, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (CRK) and others, it was advised that action has to be taken in the near term and that plants appropriate for the eroded banks need to be planted before spring so that they can have a chance to take root and stabilize the banks.
Your help on this day is needed to install live plants to help shore up Peachtree Creek’s eroding banks. Please sign up to help today!
AMPC, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and the National Park Service
for the
2016 Sweep the Hooch!
When: Saturday, April 9, 2016 from 9 am - 1 pm
Where:  Peachtree Creek at Atlanta Memorial Park
rsvp: registration site coming soon
Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and the National Park Service have joined together to organize this multi-site cleanup within the 44 miles of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area and several Georgia State Parks. Peachtree Creek, along Atlanta Memorial Park, has been selected as one of the many sites that will be participating.  More details with a registration link coming this month.  We hope you can join us to clean up our creek.
We need your help!
The Chattahoochee Riverkeeper has a Neighborhood Water Watch (NWW) Program. NWW is a collaborative program between CRK and neighborhood groups, schools and citizens in our watershed. The goal: improved water quality in urban streams and protection of human health in the surrounding communities. See CRK's website for more details about the program.
AMPC and concerned Memorial Park neighbors need to re-join this effort. If you are interested in being one of the volunteers to monitor Peachtree Creek's water at Memorial Park, please email info@atlmemorialpark.org.  AMPC will coordinate with interested volunteers and CRK to revamp this program for Peachtree Creek and work towards putting an end to the public health threats and restoring our stream.
