Beltline_logo_finalVolunteers to Remove Invasive Bamboo on the Northeast Hiking Trail of the Atlanta BeltLine

Registration is underway for the 2014 Earth Day on the Atlanta BeltLine on Saturday, April 19, 2014.

Atlanta BeltLine, Inc., the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, Park Pride, Trees Atlanta, the Atlanta Community Tool Bank, Keep Atlanta Beautiful, and neighborhood partners are working together to clear invasive bamboo and debris along the Northeast Hiking Trail to celebrate this year’s Earth Day on the Atlanta BeltLine.

With the popularity of the Eastside Trail, this stretch of interim hiking trail is getting more and more use. With your help, we will continue to improve the experience as people use the Atlanta BeltLine to connect between 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.

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.

When: Saturday, April 19, 2014

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. Activities begin at 9:00 a.m. and conclude at noon.

Volunteer Registration:

Where: Atlanta BeltLine Northeast Hiking Trail

Volunteer check in will be near Park Tavern at the corner of 10th St. and Monroe.  Please look for the check in tables manned by Keep Atlanta Beautiful representatives.
