Earth Day – Project 1

Help Remove Bamboo on the Eastside Trail Hiking Trail - Northern Extension

Atlanta BeltLine, Inc., the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, Park Pride, Trees Atlanta, the Atlanta Community Tool Bank, and neighborhood partners are working together on two projects this year! To celebrate this year’s Earth Day on the Atlanta BeltLine, participants have the option of clearing invasive bamboo and debris along the Eastside Hiking Trail Northern Extension or planting along the paved Eastside Trail at Freedom Parkway.

This event has passed.

Registration is underway for the 2015 Earth Day on the Atlanta BeltLine on Saturday, April 18, 2015.

Project 1 – Bamboo Removal on the Eastside Hiking Trail Northern Extension

With the popularity of the Eastside Trail, this stretch of interim hiking trail is getting more and more use. Volunteer will help to improve the experience as people use the Atlanta BeltLine to connect between Ansley Mall, Piedmont Park and surrounding amenities. Additionally, removing invasive plant species will increase the area available for native plants to grow, helping to support the local wildlife food web.

All volunteers should wear sturdy, close-toed shoes, long sleeves and pants, work gloves (extra gloves will be available), and should bring a water bottle, bug spray, and sunscreen.  Be prepared for moderate to heavy work.  All ages are welcome; children must be accompanied by an adult.


Saturday, April 18, 2015

All volunteers should arrive at the site by 8:30 a.m. to check in and should bring a signed waiver, which can be accessed from the registration website above. Activities begin at 9:00 a.m. and conclude at noon.
