Virtual Speaker Series: Atlanta's Secrets, Trails, and Trees

Thu Sep 03 | 7pm-8pm | Virtual

Though Trees Atlanta reminds Atlantans that we are a "City in the Forest," somehow our urban canopy is still a secret to many. What other secrets are hidden in plain sight around the metro area? To answer these questions, Trees Atlanta is excited to welcome author Jonah McDonald to speak about his books Secret Atlanta: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure and Hiking Atlanta's Hidden Forests: Intown and Out. Whether you want to learn about secret trails, champion trees, or unusual stories about our city, Jonah's presentation will be sure to inspire you to explore our city further.

Jonah McDonald is an Atlanta writer, storyteller, historian, and naturalist. His new book, Secret Atlanta: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure contains 90 short stories about unusual and forgotten places in Atlanta. He is also author of the popular guidebook Hiking Atlanta’s Hidden Forests: Intown and Out and serves as a DeKalb County park naturalist at Mason Mill Park. Jonah is passionate about native trees and just planted paw paw, serviceberry, yaupon holly, and witchhazel in his backyard. He loves exploring his city via bicycle, canoe, or foot, and believes that there is a new story to learn and tell around every bend. When he’s not already on an adventure, Jonah loves finding a new one.
