August 22, 2016: PIctured below - 42 volunteers from Children's Healthcare of Atlanta spent the morning removing trash from Peachtree Creek - totalling 1,800 pounds! Volunteers also removed invasives, English Ivy and Kudzu, from trees in the Park.
July 16, 2016: Pictured below - Volunteers from Trees Atlanta and AMPC spent 3 hours tagging the native plants of willow and elderberry that were planted in February along the creek bank in Memorial Park and clipping invasive species away from the plants so that they can continue to receive sunlight and thrive.
