    We are opting to be outdoors on the Friday after Thanksgiving. That's why we are calling this our Green Friday Gratitude Picnic & Nature Hike. This unique adventure will serve several purposes:

    1. Enjoy nature, fresh air (a break from the in-laws)
    2. Express and share our gratitude
    3. Make some new friends
    4. Kick off the Atlanta Civil Conversations Project
    5. Burn off some calories!

    Rather than charge a registration fee we are asking everyone to make a small donation to the Atlanta Civil Conversations Project according to their ability. If you cannot attend the event but would still like to support our project you will find ways to do that right here. Thank you.

    Here's the plan. You can join us for one, or both, parts...

    * Exact meeting location will be shared with those who register

    NOTE TO BIKERS

    Earlier this year, I led two series of sub-area walking tours around the Atlanta Beltline corridor (20 tours total). I learned a lot and there is a ton of cool stuff to see when you really get into the 45 neighborhoods that are inside the planning area. The problem was that the walks were a little long. That is why I decided to offer this series of (10) weekly sub-area bike tours. If you are an experienced rider and you want to really get to know the Beltline neighborhoods as well as the proposed development plans for these areas, please join me. If you are not a member, please consider joining Urban Explorers of Atlanta as you will save a lot of money. Hope to see you on the road. ~ Steve Saenz, Tour Guide
