The South Fork Conservancy invites you to its annual ‘Creek Rising Party’ at the new Zonolite Park and Trail, 5 PM to 8 PM, on April 28. The event features live music, food, beer & wine, and a special “Bog Water” cocktail for attendees. Proceeds will help the Conservancy build a bridge across Peachtree Creek to connect its Confluence Trail, near the intersection of the creek and Lindbergh Drive, with the planned PATH 400 and Atlanta Beltline trails. Tickets for the event are available online at www.southforkconservancy.org/creek-rising.
In its eight-year history the Conservancy has worked to restore and conserve the natural habitats and biodiversity of native flora and fauna along the south fork of Peachtree Creek; to build a network of trails and bridges to connect parks and people in the heart of the city; and to involve the larger community in the work of the Conservancy through public outreach, education and advocacy. It has secured over $4 million to build four trails along the creek, to create a new DeKalb County park, and managed thousands of volunteer hours to maintain the trails and to restore habitats for native flora and fauna.
