Atlanta City Hall’s atrium will be filled with wildlife and trees. Well, large-scale photographs actually – featuring 17 of Atlanta’s richly forested parks.
"Atlanta’s Wonderful Nature" is organized by Eco-A, an Atlanta nonprofit who led naturalist walks in every corner of the city last year to help people appreciate Atlanta parks by connecting with nature. Favorite parks include Herbert Greene, Morningside, Cascade Springs, Tanyard Creek and the Dawson Forest.
Eco-A walkers were invited to submit their best photographs. "Atlanta’s Wonderful Nature" remains on view for just five days – from February 16 - 20 at 68 Mitchell Street in downtown Atlanta. The public is invited to a free opening reception on Thursday, February 19 from 3:00 to 6:00 pm.
Supported by the City of Atlanta and Atlanta’s Tree Conservation Commission, the project is led by naturalist Kathryn Kolb, a talented fine art photographer herself, and Jessica Muhammad, community leader and transpersonal psychologist.
Few people realize the Southeast is the richest, most bio-diverse region in the U.S., home to more species than most places on the planet, including tropical rainforests. For instance, Georgia has more than 200 species of native trees.
By offering naturalist walks year-round, Eco-A invites people of all ages from every Atlanta neighborhood to learn more about the rich natural areas we have right here. Eco-A walks promote health and well-being and a deeper understanding of how nature’s intricate systems work. To join a naturalist walk in 2015, visit ecoaddendum.org.
