March 20, more than 35 Cub Scouts and parents from packs in Garden Hills and Toco Hills attacked the exotic plants and picked up trash on the Meadow Loop Trail along the North Fork of Peachtree Creek. This was the second time the scouts helped clean up the trail. Thanks to them and many neighbors, you can now walk the entire loop starting from the two exposed manholes to the overpass and then back along the stream to Lindbergh. Lots of that nasty kudzu, privet, multiflora roses and honeysuckle have been cut down, pulled up, and eliminated from the meadow. During the two workdays, nearly 20 bags of trash were collected along with tires, chairs, mattresses and a steel ammo box. As soon as Georgia DOT gives its permission, we will erect a sign heralding the trail as part of a longer trail system along the North and South Forks of Peachtree Creek. As the weather is finally brightening and getting warmer, please take the opportunity to stroll the trail – and feel free to pick up some trash during your walk!
