Volunteer Afternoon Venetian Hills

December 4, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Eco-A joins forces with West Atlanta Watershed Alliance to help a neighbor in Venetian Hills who is losing her yard due to erosion from stormwater runoff that flows during heavy rains behind her house. We’ll clear some debris from the mostly dry creek bed, so stormwater cannot pool, and we’ll cut English ivy off the trees along the stream banks. We’ll save several wonderful black walnut trees from invasive vines, so we may have the opportunity to gather a few black walnuts while we’re there.


Please wear tough clothes, long-pants and long sleeves, and sturdy shoes. If you have pruning saws, loppers or clippers, feel free to bring them with you, but we can provide tools and gloves for everyone.


There is no cost to attend, but please RSVP HERE — details and directions will be sent to all participants – limit 20 people.

A donation of $15 or more helps sustain our programs.
