Discovery Walks: Piedmont Park & Beltline

Presented by Science ATL

Holy moly! You cleaned us out! Sorry - we've had to shut down today because we've run out of maps! But we'll be back on the Beltline tomorrow! Come on by!

Science is all around us, often hidden in everyday places - where we live, where we play, and where we walk. On this self-guided Discovery Walk down the Beltline and into Piedmont Park, you will uncover some of this secret science on a family-friendly 4 mile route with ten intriguing science stops. Pick up a free Discovery Walk map and take your family on an urban science adventure through this city trail.
A volunteer will be posted along the Beltline at the entrance to Ponce City Market (just outside The Shed). Stop by and snag a map!
This event repeats on Sunday, March 20. See info here.
