The Georgia Conservancy’s Generation Green Presents: Verde!
The Biltmore, 817 West Peachtree Street (Downtown)
The Lorax isn’t the only one speaking for the trees in our neck of the woods. Park Ranger Robby Astrove has long been a pinnacle of the Davidson-Arabia Nature Preserve, as well as quite the verdant potentate of all-things-environmental about town. Odds are if you’ve ever embarked on a hike of Arabia Mountain or volunteered with Trees Atlanta, you’ve crossed his path. Tonight, join the Georgia Conservancy in raising a glass to the recently accoladed Ranger Robby, this year’s recipient of the Longleaf Award. Pro-Tip: Snag your tickets in advance here.
