Walking Tour: History and Changes on the BeltLine Eastside Trail
Sat Jan 08 | 9am-10:30am | BeltLine Eastside Trail
Jeff Keesee, Trees Atlanta volunteer for over 20 years and one of our most popular tour docents, will be leading a guided walking tour of rails, trails, trees and tales, and the urban fabric that stitches them together along America’s most transformative urban redevelopment.
Enjoy the fresh air on a leisurely stroll with city views as the backdrop of Atlanta's popular linear arboretum. Our docent will share fascinating Atlanta history and guide you through the current season of horticulture interest on the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum. A walking tour of the Atlanta BeltLine is a great way to see the evolving arboretum in its current stage and hear a few notable historical and horticultural stories along the trail on this outdoor excursion.
Tours are offered on the second or third Saturday of each month. Guests will meet next to the Beltline behind (the now closed) Parish Restaurant (240 North Highland Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA, 30307) and end at Ponce City Market.
This tour is guided by a Trees Atlanta Docent, one of our trained Certified Volunteers. Come join us to learn about the trail and enjoy fresh air, new city views, and fascinating Atlanta history.
