ABOUT US: Our Mission
Save the Trees of Grant Park exists to advocate for the NEARLY 400 TREES which are marked for destruction under multiple development plans. We insist that the plans include robust public involvement and engagement and the full dissemination of information for the participation of a fully informed public.
Save the Trees of Grant Park, Inc. will educate neighbors and surrounding communities, the broader public (particularly those interested in historic preservation and/or nature conservation), government employees and elected leaders, the Grant Park Neighborhood Association, the Grant Park Conservancy, and Zoo Atlanta about any development plans involving Grant Park and about the importance of our park’s trees and ecosystems.
We are committed to protecting Grant Park, Atlanta’s oldest city park, as a public park, deeded to the city of Atlanta by L.P. Grant and designed by the guiding principles of the city’s Master Plan for Grant Park.
We will hold accountable any individual or entity that threatens Grant Park’s trees, historic nature, and public park use, employing the legal system, the media, and active engagement.
Save the Trees of Grant Park, Inc. is a registered nonprofit in the State of Georgia. We have applied for status with the IRS as a charitable organization under section 501(c)(3).
