The Little Creek Farm Conservancy in Decatur was recently awarded a Habitat Restoration Fund Grant by Atlanta Audubon.

The Little Creek Horse Farm and Park is 40 acres of greenspace and an equestrian facility on Lawrenceville Highway, and according to a recent press release, it is “one of the last remaining horse stables inside the Atlanta perimeter.”

Atlanta Audubon will help to restore a creek bank as well as make an inviting habitat for birds and wildlife alike. Plans for the Little Creek Farm Conservancy includes removing invasive plants and replacing them with native plants, developing community outreach programs, and earning the Atlanta Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary Certification.

“Atlanta Audubon is eager to work with the Little Creek Farm Conservancy to restore the creek bank and create a bird-friendly garden in the meadow area that is filled with native plants that are good for birds and other wildlife,” Atlanta Audubon Director of Conservation Adam Betuel said in a recent press release.
