Invasive Plant Removal and Nature Walk at Proctor Creek and Grove Park

Love is in the air, and English ivy is in the forest! Georgia Tech Trailblazers invites you to share some love this Valentines weekend by providing hands-on restoration efforts for Atlanta’s urban forest. Join us while we work to remove English ivy and other invasive plants in a very special original forest remnant at Grove Park and Proctor Creek.   

We’ll start with a short intro to the unusually high value of this urban forest, and include training on how to identify native from non-native species, and how to remove invasive species such as privet, autumn olive, english ivy, and others. We will also practice identifying native plants traditionally found in older forests. These techniques can help you to continue to spread love to your own backyard and local forests all year long.  

Transportation will be provided round trip from Georgia Tech.
