Led by Zach Lim, Naturalist and Trees Atlanta Youth Education Coordinator

Tucked away in lovely Druid Hills, Deepdene Park is a beautiful example of Atlanta’s urban forest. Shaded by native hardwood, such as Sassafras, Tulip Poplar, and various Oak species, this pristine area provides habitat for the flora and fauna that call our city home. Join Tree’s Atlanta’s naturalist Zach Lim in search of native animals and plants that flourish during winter in this forest. Will salamanders be seeking refuge under logs? Are there winter birds in the canopy? Which critters are rustling in the under story? Have all the trees lost their leaves for the season? Bring the whole family and let us answer these questions together! 

We'll use bug jars and magnifying glasses (provided). Please wear comfortable, outdoor clothing such as hiking boots and comfortable clothes to be prepared to get close to nature.


On-street parking is available along South Ponce de Leon Avenue and North Ponce de Leon Avenue.

We recommend walking, biking, or carpooling to this event.

Thank you to the following organizations whose support enables Trees Atlanta to bring you this education event.
