June 25, 2019
The TransFormation Alliance, a partnership of more than 30 government agencies, businesses and nonprofits, including the Strong, Prosperous, And Resilient Communities Challenge (SPARCC), announced today a series of innovative grants to help infrastructure in Atlanta heal where it once divided.
9th Annual Great American Cookout
After 8 successful years, we are extremely excited to return to the Outdoor Activity Center (OAC), a part of the Atlanta Children’s Forest Network, for another campout. The OAC is a 26-acre urban nature preserve located just a few miles from downtown in the Richland Hills community of Southwest Atlanta.
Come out and enjoy food, fun, fellowship, and a night of family camping under the stars. This event is especially geared for first-time campers. You will learn how to set up tents, roast marshmallows, make s’mores, take a night hike and nocturnal insect experience, and witness top-notch entertainment including African storytelling and a vibrant drum circle.
