September 9 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

This small, little known greenspace is tucked away in West Atlanta’s Ivan Hill neighborhood. It’s unusual to find mature forest-grown oaks on a hill top in Atlanta, but tall scarlet, white and post oaks mingle with sourwood and beech trees that lead downslope to the North Fork of Utoy Creek. Native indicator species are still found in the area with the oldest forest.

Deer trails are the only trails found here, so we’ll just walk around the hill and down to the creek, 1/4 to 1/2 mile with no trail, then we’ll work on removing English Ivy at the top of the hill, which is just in the beginning stage of making in-roads into this special forest. A few days of work in the next few seasons could literally save many months of work in just a few years time.

This property is great for observing the different types of forest – from original to mid-successional. We’ll walk for the the first hour, identifying interesting clues about the forest, then we’ll put on gloves and turn the tide on some of the English ivy, which is quite easy to to remove in this location.
