Come out and support the Beltline Arboretum!

  The Atlanta Beltline co-op, in conjunction with Trees Atlanta and several other local non-profits, is encouraging Atlanta residents to take part in the project’s ambitious arboretum vision.

  On Saturday, October 24th, volunteers will plant trees along what will become the Beltline Arboretum, a living museum of trees intended to serve as both an eye-catching exposition and a corridor of scientific research.

  The arboretum will stretch along the entirety of the 22-mile loop, and plant life will be specifically catered to each individual neighborhood, allowing residents to identify their location based purely on the trees that surround them.

  There is no need to sign up, just show up in comfortable clothes, ready to work and get your hands dirty. Tools, work gloves and training will all be provided and volunteers should arrive no later than 9am at the Kipp Strive School, 1444 Lucile Ave.
