Conservancy, Trees Atlanta ask help to restore Peachtree Creek banks
In other areas, sand was deposited along the banks, covering up the existing vegetation, according to Catherine Spillman, executive director of the Atlanta Memorial Park Conservancy.
After consulting with Trees Atlanta, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and others, the Atlanta Memorial Park Conservancy was advised that action must be taken now to install live plants to help shore up Peachtree Creek’s eroding banks.
Plants appropriate for the eroded banks of Peachtree Creek need to be planted before spring so that they can have a chance to take rood and stabilize the banks.
So, Atlanta Memorial Park Conservancy and Trees Atlanta have scheduled an Erosion Control Volunteer Day for Saturday, Feb. 27, from 9 a.m. to noon, to deal with the problem. Volunteers are asked to sign up and then report to the open field area off of Howell Mill Road on Feb. 27.
“Your help on this day is needed to install live plants to help shore up Peachtree Creek’s eroding banks,” said Spillman. “Please sign up today to help!”
