Venue Name: Rose Circle SW & Joseph E Lowery Blvd SW

Join the West Atlanta Watershed Alliance (WAWA) and Science for Georgia as we highlight scientists working and teaching on the Westside of Atlanta. Together we will walk, talk, network, and build on our collective power to communicate and support scientifically sound decision-making in the city of Atlanta, the broader state, and region. Focusing on the Westside of Atlanta, scientific experts will lead conversations ranging from community-based and community-initiated city and state policies (i.e. The New Atlanta Tree Ordinance: 5-Step Plan), climate change impacts (reoccurring flooding, energy burdens, environmental justice), food insecurities/deserts and oases, and green infrastructure/green gentrification.
