Join the Conservancy’s Spring Fling May 6 … or Just Join the Conservancy
By Ken Edelstein, Candler Park Conservancy Board Member.
Please join us Sunday, May 6, 2018 at 6:00 pm for Beavers, Bluegrass & Barbecue, the Candler Park Conservancy’s 2018 spring membership social! We’ll gather right on Terrace Avenue for this casual, family-friendly street party — to have some fun and to celebrate another successful year of progress for Candler Park with the help of our growing community of members.
Thanks to the generous support of three fabulous in-kind sponsors, the event will feature food from Candler Park’s own Fox Bros BBQ, beverages from SweetWater Brewing Co. and live music from Max and Maggie. We will also lead guests on a beaver walk to explore Candler Park’s urban wetlands habitat.
Later this month, join the Conservancy for yet another fun event in the park. Together with the Atlanta Audubon Society on Saturday, May 26, we’re hosting an abbreviated version of Society’s popular “Becoming a Better Birder” workshop. Then, participants will be led on a brief guided bird walk together in the park. Nature-lovers, birders and other interested neighbors of all ages and experience levels are welcome!
We will convene at 9:00 am at one of the small pavilions (near the Playground). Parking is available in the main Candler Park lot. A limited number of binoculars and light refreshments will be provided.
Even if you’re unable to attend either event, we hope you’ll consider joining your Conservancy. Last year, we completed four park improvement projects — ranging from erosion control near the tennis courts, to a bike repair station on the Freedom Path, to park beautification, and we also completed a Vision Plan for 14 long-term capital projects. Your participation in developing these projects can only make them better. Members qualify for free t-shirts and receive an email newsletter to let them know what’s going on in their park.
