2/13/10 Beltline walk and Tree Tour

Hi UrbanHikers and friends,
There's snow possible tomorrow, but saturday looks warmer and sunny.
Let's go for a walk!

Option #1- 12 noon Urban Hike on the Beltline with Angel Poventud:
We will be meeting at 12:00 PM on Saturday, February 13 at the end of Lena
St near the Washington Park Tennis Center and Natatorium (1077 Lena St NW,
Atlanta GA, 30314). The walk will take place mostly in the BeltLine
corridor in the section cleared for the temporary hiking trail. The entire
route is 5 miles and will take three hours to complete. It will start at
Washington Park and go south to Allene Ave. From there it will go to the
West End Marta Station, where we will ride MARTA to the Ashby station, and
walk from there to the beginning of the route. We will be taking and
answering questions about the temporary art project and the BeltLine on
the walk.

This is a rain or shine event. Please bring water, a snack, comfortable
shoes that can contend with kudzu and mud, $2 for the fare for MARTA, and
be ready to enjoy a beautiful walk through the Westside and Southwest of
Atlanta. See you on the BeltLine.

Option #2- Champion tree tour and workshop in Fernbank Forest:
Join Trees Atlanta and Fernbank Museum of Natural History on February 13th
from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. to view and practice measuring giant trees in
the Fernbank Forest. We'll meet at 1:30 pm SHARP at the dinosaurs in
front of the museum- 767 Clifton Rd NE, Atlanta, GA. Wear comfortable
warm clothes! Plan to walk about 1-2 miles. More info:
