Herbert Greene Park – photography walk

October 26, 2014 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Oct 26 – Herbert Greene Park

Nature Photography Walk

Time: 1:30 – 4:00 PM

Location: Herbert Greene Park, Atlanta, GA


Herbert Greene Park is a less well-known greenspace located just outside I-285 in the geologically unique section of Atlanta’s western suburbs that include Boulder Park and Fulton County’s Boat Rock Nature Preserve. Surface outcrops of rounded, ancient boulders are found in the park as well as in the surrounding neighborhood.

A strikingly beautiful section of Utoy Creek traverses Herbert Greene, and we’ll follow the trail along Utoy Creek and its large tributary stream. This greenspace holds on to its rural character, and contains a diverse native forest rich with creeks and wetlands. More wildlife than is usual for an urban zone call this natural area home, from deer to tiny tree frogs and likely everyone in between. Connected closely to the Chattahoochee River corridor, this greenspace also hosts migrating and unusual birds.

Maturing diverse upland and riverine forest will provide wonderful photography opportunities especially in the colorful fall season. If you don’t have a camera we’ll provide one for you, and your photos well help tell the story of how special Atlanta’s Nature really is!

There is no fee to attend but please RSVP!
