Turtle in the Park


This little guy/gal was found nesting near the Park entrance by Pauline and Michael Drake.  They moved the turtle into the Park near the stream.  It appears to be an Eastern Mud Turtle

May 16th and 23rd Work Sessions

We had a scheduled work session on May 16, where we extended the mulch path close to the second bench inside the Park.  We also had a mini work session on the 23rd, planting annuals given to us by the City of Atlanta Parks Department.  Those participating in the work sessions were Cesar De Jesus, Michael Drake, Pauline Drake, Jim Gantner, Michael C. Howard, Dawn Jackson-Robinson, Bryan Jenkins, Leola McKinney; and our youth volunteers Malik Norman, Naggee Norman, Rahsaan Norman, and Isaac Robinson.


May 3rd Park Entrance Dedication

Thanks to all of those who were at our dedication ceremony!  Because of your support, we were able to complete Phase 1 of Jennie Drake Park.
