WHY: Protected content be a big year for South Fork Conservancy, with major installations happening throughout the trail system. The biggest and most prominent addition will be Confluence Bridge, located near the confluence of the North and South Forks of Peachtree Creek. Situated in a park-starved part of Atlanta, this new Protected content pedestrian bridge will connect the city’s urban present to its natural past, giving people easy access to the forests and waterways hidden in plain sight. Along with the upcoming opening of the Confluence Bridge, SFC has created (with the support of a Coca-Cola and a Cox grant) three Rain Gardens along the trails to slow and filter a total of 10 million gallons of stormwater runoff per year before it reaches the creek. The Conservancy has also continued to build new trail segments and restore habitat throughout the trail system. Creek Rising will celebrate these successes and help fund more progress to connect Atlantans to our natural backyards.
