The Adopt-A-Trail program keeps the trails navigable and safe for many years to come, and it engages neighboring communities to get involved in the Preserve!


The following are trails that have already been adopted. If you, your neighborhood group, local school, or company are interested in adopting a trail, please email

Woodland Loop Trail

The Woodland Loop Trail is one of the most well-traveled trails so we are enthralled to have members of the Riverwood National Honor Society help maintain it. They come out at least once a month to rake and weed the trail, pick up trash, and remove invasive plants growing around it.

Painted Turtle Trail

To maintain the Painted Turtle Trail, Move Well ATL invites families and community members to change the way they think about volunteering. Even small movements like walking, weeding, and picking up trash can have a big and positive impact on your body and mind. We appreciate the mission of Move Well ATL to encourage activity in every day life.


Beaver Tail Trail

Every month, Blue Heron recruits volunteers from Georgia State University to maintain the Beaver Tail Trail at our Emma Wetlands property.

In addition to the trail maintenance, there is a big focus on invasive plant removal to make sure our wetlands remain a healthy habitat for all creatures.
