Adopt

An Exciting Way to Engage with the Atlanta BeltLine!

A partnership between Park Pride, Trees Atlanta, the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, and Atlanta BeltLine Inc., the Adopt-the-Atlanta BeltLine program offers an opportunity for community groups to play a direct role in helping improve and maintain the Atlanta BeltLine.

Before you apply to the Adopt-the-Atlanta BeltLine, please familiarize yourself with the program:

Program Benefits

  • Team-building opportunity for community groups, businesses, and local organizations.
  • Sense of doing good and contributing to the progress of the Atlanta BeltLine.
  • Raising awareness for service opportunities and greenspace initiatives.

What to Expect

  • To commit to a one-year, renewable segment adoption with monthly volunteer day.
  • A training and orientation session from Park Pride
  • That different segments of the BeltLine will require different volunteer support. Some segments may only necessitate litter clean-up, while others may need to be cleared of brush or invasive plants, weeded or monitored for maintenance concerns.
  • That you’ll improve the moral of your peers by working side-by-side on a project that’s transforming Atlanta!
  • Excellent volunteer support from the Park Pride Volunteer Program.

Adoption Group Types

There are two categories of adoption groups with slightly different requirements:

  • Local groups are the eyes and ears for the adopted segment and will generally conduct monthly (or more frequent) site visits and smaller clean-ups. Minimum requirement: 3 hours per month.
  • Corporate/regional groups will generally organize larger quarterly projects, visiting the segment less frequently than the local group but meeting a higher number of volunteer hours. Minimum requirement: 15 hours per quarter.
