On sunny Saturday, March 16, Adopt the Atlanta BeltLine group Inman Alley hit the trail to pick up trash as part of their monthly clean-ups. The volunteer project comes in advance of the native grass planting now getting underway on the Eastside Trail. Inman Alley has adopted the segment of the Eastside Trail from N. Highland Avenue south to Irwin Street. With over a dozen bags of trash collected, they definitely made an impact. Below is an excerpt from their blog by Square Feet Studio:
Event Coordinator Mark Cohen of Wit noted “I love the Beltline and I hate trash so this was a natural way for me to spend a couple of hours on Saturday.”
“The Beltline is essentially our backyard, plus Mark and I were born on Earth Day, so this kind of thing is in our blood” added John Bencich of Square Feet Studio.
Fellow Wit crew member, Caleb Morris found a $20 bill and received numerous “thank you’s” from passers by adding to the team’s sense of accomplishment. He asked that we leave everyone with one final note “Pick up your dog’s poop because we don’t do poop.”
Thanks everyone and see you on the Atlanta BeltLine!
