Third Sunday Stroll is October 15: Visit Glenn Creek Nature Preserve

Image result for glenn creek nature preserveAre you familiar with the Glenn Creek Nature Preserve, right here in Decatur? Have you visited before? If not, now is your chance! Join members of the Pedestrian Committee on Sunday, October 15, at 2 pm.

Decatur Active Living’s October Third Sunday Stroll will be led by Neil Norton, who is an ISA-certified arborist. He founded Glenn Creek Nature Preserve and will tell us all about it as we enjoy a walk through the area.

Located between Glennwood Estates and Decatur Heights, Glenn Creek Nature Preserve is a two-acre bio-reserve of native Piedmont habitat maintained by neighbors and owned by the City of Decatur. Glenn Creek (formerly Hunter’s Branch) runs through the property and is part of the South Fork Peachtree sub-watershed.

Meet in front of the Decatur Recreation Center at  2 pm and walk over as a group to the preserve. Parking is available in the Library parking deck (Decatur Rec shares the deck with them).  Contact  Kimberly Head Amos (404-550-4323) for more information.

Healthy Monday: Give Dinner Time a Makeover

fork and knifeIs dinner anything but relaxing? Perhaps it’s time for a change!

Studies show that a relaxing dinner experience is beneficial to everyone, whether you’re eating alone or with your family.

To create a positive dining atmosphere, turn off all technology and eat at a table with place settings.

This week, schedule at least one relaxing dinner to enjoy time with your family and/or friends. The dinner doesn’t have to be perfect, as long as you’re enjoying the meal.
