South Fork Peachtree Creek is one of DeKalb's most important waterways. We invite you to help document changes in the creek throughout the year. The sand deposits at this bend change whenever there is a major storm. This Chronolog timelapse illuminates the ongoing changes caused by stormwater runoff from our streets, homes, and parking lots. This is also a beautiful spot to document seasonal changes to the foliage. This cove contains sweetshrub, strawberry bush, royal fern, and a diverse population of trees including beech, hop hornbeam, American hornbeam, and river birch.
DeKalb County Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs provides opportunities for nature education and recreation for all DeKalb residents. Mason Mill Park contains a 120-acre forest with a network of some of the nicest hiking and biking trails in the county. The South Peachtree Creek Trail is a multi-use boardwalk and paved route that connects Mason Mill Park, Medlock Park, the Leafmore neighborhood, and Emory University. A network of soft surface trails also provides miles of hiking opportunities within Mason Mill, Ira B. Melton, and Medlock Parks. The three Chronolog photo stations along the South Peachtree Creek Trail invite citizens to help document changes in the park throughout the year.
