I loved this event! For this community service activity, I was not only able to learn about art restoration, but I was able to help actively restore the crayon markers alongside the belt line. I also enjoyed the short tour we took of the belt line to learn about some of the artists and their artwork which was present along the walls, under the bridge, and on the sides of the bridge.
I thoroughly enjoyed this experience! I've volunteered with Trees Atlanta once before, however, this time, the weather seemed to be perfect. I really like that the Eastside trail is more of a forest because I felt like I was able to more easily interact with the plants growing alongside and in the trail. I learned a lot of valuable information about the native and foreign vegetation growing in georgia and was even able to see an owl up close for the first time in my life (I think)! It was interesting to learn that the United States and Asia are both considered subtropic regions and so, as a result, our similar climates causes Asian plants to grow in certain U.S. regions.
