The weather turned out to be perfect for the work. While the live stakes are only sticks today, in one to two weeks they are expected to begin sprouting along four sections of Peachtree Creek’s bank in Memorial Park, spreading their roots.

Atlanta Memorial Park Conservancy Executive Director Catherine Spillman urged residents “to keep an eye on the most visible section, west of the Northside Drive bridge, as the live stakes begin to grow. Let’s continue to make a difference and do what we can to help,” she added.

AMPC’s next event is participation in Chattahoochee Riverkeeper’s annual Sweep the Hooch Volunteer Day on April 9. To volunteer, click here.
