SUSTAINABLE ATLANTA ROUNDTABLE (SART)
Atlanta’s Proctor Creek: Challenges and Possibilities
Friday, July 10, 2015 7:30-9:00 am | All Saints' Episcopal Church, Ellis Hall
Proctor Creek flows through northwest Atlanta from downtown to the Chattahoochee River. Its watershed is made up of 38 neighborhoods and is characterized by a rich cultural history and a history of economic and environmental challenges. The evolving story of Proctor Creek spans the themes of urban revitalization, stormwater management, environmental justice and community activism.
Today, many organizations are actively working within the watershed to improve the environment and the quality of life of residents. Join us to learn a little about Atlanta’s Proctor Creek and to hear about some of the initiatives underway to serve the watershed.
