    Name: Lifecycle of a Landfill Program & Hike
    Date: June 8, 2019
    Time: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:

    So, a landfill is just burying trash in the ground, right? Wrong! There is a lot of science behind what is done but there are also a lot of myths. Find out what really happens in a landfill: Does trash actually decompose? What happens when a landfill is full? You'll also learn how you can reduce what goes in to the landfill. Missy Phillips with Keep Bartow Beautiful will have programs at 10:30, 11:30, 12:30.

    The Preserve will be open 10 am – 5 pm for hiking on your own. Admission is $3 per person/max $10 per family or FREE to members and includes parking & hiking. Visitors may hike one of the Preserve’s three trails that range in length from a stroll of .25 mi to a 1.7 mi loop trail around the lake.

    Leashed dogs are welcome, but the trails do not accommodate strollers. Please arrive no later than 4 pm so you will have time to finish your hike before we close.

    Directions: We are located off Douthit Bridge Rd, accessed only from Hwy 61 (between Cartersville & Dallas). Since our location is off the beaten path, many map programs do NOT provide accurate directions. Use the info on our Contact Us page. Or for GPS, use "Douthit Bridge Rd, Dallas, 30132", then follow signs.
