Adopt the Atlanta BeltLine

Be a Part of the Progress on the Atlanta BeltLine

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

Adopt an Atlanta BeltLine Segment or Volunteer at an Atlanta BeltLine Park

Until recently, our adoption program only featured opportunities to help maintain segments of the Atlanta BeltLine trail itself. Now, we are excited to work with partner groups to also offer volunteer opportunities within parks on the Atlanta BeltLine. Along with sections of the Atlanta BeltLine, there are numerous parks along the Atlanta BeltLine where groups can commit to volunteer and assist the efforts of existing “Friends of the Park” groups. We hope you will pitch in to help keep the Atlanta BeltLine beautiful!

Adoption Group Responsibilities

During your one-year, renewable commitment, you will be expected to visit your adopted 1/4-mile BeltLine segment regularly to:

  • Pick up litter
  • Maintain greenspace through weeding and invasive plant removal
  • Report maintenance concerns, vandalism, or suspicious activities
  • Other volunteer projects will be determined as the Atlanta BeltLine progresses – the scope of the adoption program will evolve along with the Atlanta BeltLine

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
