Adams Park – Naturalist & Photography Walk

March 19, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Adams Park

Sat March 19, 10:00AM – noon

Adams Park, the namesake of one of Atlanta’s beautiful older neighborhoods as well as its signature park, is found in Atlanta’s Southwest quadrant, not far from Cascade Springs Nature Preserve. In addition to recreational facilities, Adams Park holds the headwaters of one of Utoy Creek’s tributary streams and a maturing forest and small lake sets the tone of a quiet a quiet oasis.  We’ll take a tour of the park and look for signs of spring popping out by mid-March. It’s possible we could see a few early migrant songbirds as well.

She and members of her award-winning “Women Warriors” neighborhood team, will join us to introduce the Adams Park neighborhood and their efforts to help save healthy trees, especially from the deadly burden of English Ivy, Wisteria and Kudzu.
