MODA presents: Design = Change: The Peachtree Creek Greenway with Betsy Eggers

tlanta is rapidly becoming a greener and more bike- and pedestrian-friendly city because of the work of people like Betsy Eggers, Founder of the Peachtree Creek Greenway.

Join MODA on Tuesday, June 15 for a conversation with Betsy in which we’ll learn about the work she and others are doing to create a multi-use trail that will connect all communities along the North Fork Peachtree Creek.

When completed, this greenway will connect Atlanta, Brookhaven, Chamblee, Unincorporated DeKalb, and Doraville for bikers, walkers, and joggers. It will also turn Peachtree Creek into a healthy ecosystem able to manage stormwater, mitigate floods, and provide shelter to wildlife and native plants.

From free to $10

About Design = Change
Atlanta’s most creative people (and some from beyond the 404) will invite you (virtually) into their home, studio, or maker space. They’ll tell you about their work, their career trajectory, and what they’re thinking about now as our world takes a new form.

About Betsy Eggers
Betsy Eggers founded the Peachtree Creek Greenway, Inc. in 2013 to advocate for the creation a multi-use trail that parallels I-85 and North Fork Peachtree Creek. In 2014 Betsy began riding a bike — with great trepidation — after a 45-year hiatus. The Greenway opened the first section in Brookhaven in 2019. “One mile down, 12 to go!”
