Atlanta Champion Tree Tour at Atlanta Memorial Park
This event has passed.
Join Eli Dickerson, Fernbank Ecologist and volunteer manager of Trees Atlanta’s Champion Tree Program (a program of Trees Atlanta), in this 2-hour tour of the largest trees in the greenspaces along Peachtree Creek.
Participants will see a rare stand of bald cypress trees, along with a champion osage orange, green ash, river birch, loblolly pine and white oak. Participants will also see the tallest tree in Atlanta, a 166 foot tall tulip poplar (that’s 17 stories!).
This walk will be at a leisurely pace, but is not suitable for strollers. Participants should be able to comfortably walk 1 to 2 miles. Be sure to bring water and comfortable clothing (dress for the weather!). This walk will be rain or shine!
This is a free program. Please register to attend. There is a maximum capacity for this walk of 35 participants.
