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:

Urban Forest Explorers: Homeschool Edition

Theme: All About Trees

Time to spring into learning and fun! This session will introduce explorers to the Dichotomous Key and how to apply it to the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum trees. They will also learn about the life cycle of a tree and of course, create a craft 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
