Weekly Plant Guardians

Help care for our plants at projects around town. Activities include mulching urban trees in the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, watering new trees, removing invasive plants, maintaining the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum, planting new trees, and other outdoor maintenance tasks.

We highly recommend that volunteers wear long pants and long sleeves. All volunteers need closed-toed shoes or boots, clothes that can get dirty, sunscreen and bug spray as needed, snacks as needed (though a meal or snack before the project is recommended), and drinking water in reusable containers. No one-time-use plastic bottles, please.

You may choose from from the following shifts:
  • 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
  • 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Urban Forest Explorers: Homeschool Edition

Theme: The Blooming Arboretum

Sunny weather and a fresh breeze means it time for explorers to get back to the Arboretum! This session will include learning about native flowers in the prairie,service learning through weeding and a nature craft to take to take home. 

Homeschoolers and unschoolers are invited to play and learn with like-minded kids at the Trees Atlanta TreeHouse. Our homeschool programs are designed for the a-typical thinker who seeks a personal connection to Atlanta’s urban forest. We offer a unique blend of exploration on the Atlanta BeltLine, environmental education and urban forest crafts for ages 7-13.
  • All explorers need to bring a brown bag lunch. 
  • Please note this is a student only event. Parents are welcomed to drop off their student(s) at 10:00 a.m. and return for pick-up at 1:00 p.m.
