Fernbank Forest

The Fernbank Forest, Atlanta’s largest urban forest, has reopened after a two-year ecological restoration project. Invasive species were removed to allow native plants to flourish. This 65-acre forest supports a diverse ecosystem and includes trees that are up to 300 years old. Although the Fernbank Forest is open to the public, access is through the Fernbank Museum of Natural History and well worth a year’s membership. Yesterday was the first time that I had walked in these woodlands. I was in awe of this beautiful and pristine hardwood forest.

    Agree except that I walked for years in this special place without having to pay a dime or a membership to the museum. The access to the forest should be free. see http://www.openfernbankforest.com/

    • I am aware of the controversy but do not know much about the specifics. I will check out the link you provided. Thanks.
