Tree Tour: Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum Northside Trail

Sun Apr 02 | 10am-11:30am | Northside BeltLine Trail

Explore the Northside Beltline Trail next to the Bobby Jones Golf Course. Learn about the history of the area and about its trees on a guided walk. The tour will continue along the Northwest Atlanta BeltLine Connector to visit Tanyard Creek Park, a hidden gem home to several Champion Trees. Trees Atlanta docents will help you learn how to identify trees, invasive plants, why Trees Atlanta advocates for native plants, and about our restoration efforts in this area, and others, around Metro Atlanta. The area is rich in history, so docents will also share information about the 1865 Battle of Peachtree Creek and the 1955 battle for integration of the city golf courses and parks.

About the Tour Docents:
