This walk, in partnership with the Atlanta Audubon Society,  will focus on identifying native plants, as well as non-native invasive plants.  We will also identify birds seen and heard along the trail, and discuss how they use the plants in their habitat.  The walk is open to GNPS members, Atlanta Audubon Society members, and the general public.
