ATLANTA URBAN ECOLOGISTS

The Atlanta Urban Ecologists program for youth in grades 8 through 12 will guide students in the discovery of the fascinating, rich ecology of Metropolitan Atlanta, providing opportunities for hands-on field experiences and fun with their peers.

Perfect for students interested in pursuing careers in science or conservation or those who just enjoy being outside in nature, the Atlanta Urban Ecologists program provides students with opportunities to learn alongside experts in the field, as well as meaningful experiences in the outdoor places that make Atlanta the “City in a Forest.” Students will establish a network of environmental professionals who can assist with their academic and career development while having fun outdoors with their peers.

Sessions are hosted by a different environmental nonprofit on the second Saturday of each month from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM from October to May. These sessions will be preceded by a introductory class via webinar on Thursday evenings from 5:30-6:30 PM.* A virtual orientation will be held on Thursday, October 1, from 5:30 to 6:30 PM.

This year, to prevent the transmission of the COVID-19 virus, we will require masks and social distancing for our in-person sessions, which will take place outdoors.

See below for the program calendar and session descriptions. 

Partners for the 2020-21 program include Trees Atlanta, Zoo Atlanta, Georgia Audubon, Blue Heron Nature Preserve, Fulton County Public Works, Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve (DeKalb Co. Parks), Amphibian Foundation, and Cubihatcha Outdoor Center.
