Join this interactive and engaging tour of green infrastructure and arts/creative placemaking projects completed in the Utoy Creek Watershed! Discover how this work is about more than improving stormwater management and water quality/quantity in public and private places, it’s about community benefits, and public-private partnerships to improve quality of life, economic opportunity, the environment, connecting people and nature, and mitigating displacement as our city grows and develops.

The projects visited on this tour–which include projects at the Outdoor Activity Center and Reverend James Orange Park–have been completed as part of Southface’s Atlanta CREW (Culture-Resilience-Environment-Workforce) green infrastructure workforce development program in partnership with WAWA, HABESHA, Greening Youth Foundation, the TransFormation Alliance, and the City of Atlanta.

Participants will hear from Atlanta CREW graduates who will share their experience with the program and projects.

Accessibility: All tour locations are ADA accessible.
