Trees Atlanta: Make a difference and celebrate MLK Day by planting new trees in Brook Run Park! We'll be adding new trees close to the new multi-use fields. These trees will provide cleaner air, cool shade, and all around improved habitat for humans and wildlife living in our community. Planting tasks include digging holes with shovels/mattocks, untangling roots with your hands, mulching, watering, and cleaning up your area. Click here to register
