Visiting Atlanta? Check Out The Canopy Walk
Visitors to the Atlanta Botanical Garden can now tour one of the city's last remaining urban forests from 40 feet in the air now that the long-awaited Canopy Walk has opened, lending a bird's-eye view to the beauty of a woodland below. The May 1st Grand Opening of the Canopy Walk, Edible Garden and Cascades Garden marked the completion an expansion project which nearly doubled the size of the Garden.
Extending 600 feet from a bluff in the Garden into the branches of oaks, hickories and poplars, the walk is considered the only tree canopy-level walkway of its kind in the United States. By linking the 15-acre existing Garden to the adjacent Storza Woods, the Canopy Walk has enriched the visitor's experience, providing 30 acres of gardens to explore. Strolling the 12-foot-wide concrete pathway, visitors will feel like they are floating through the leafy clouds of storied hardwoods, thanks to the bridge's four large masts which seemingly disappear amongst the treetops.
This is one of those special activities that is beautiful, educational AND fun, for grown-ups and kids alike! Check out their website for information on other programs like birdwatching, critter tours, scavenger hunts, visiting at night and special classes. www.atlantabotanicalgarden.org

Scrapper's Edge & Scrap Pink join forces to fight Breast Cancer
Scrapper’s Edge joins nationwide Scrap PinkTM campaign to benefit breast cancer research
Eureka, California – September 29, 2007, local Scrapbooking enthusiasts will come together for the first-ever Scrap Pink weekend, a fundraising event created by Scrapbooks etc to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Hosting the event locally will be Scrapper’s Edge, the largest Scrapbooking shop in Northern California, located at 728 4th Street in Eureka.
On Scrap Pink weekend, retailers will invite consumers to participate in an exciting in-store scrapbooking party, called a crop, where scrapbookers will create layouts and projects. Customers will pay $30 to attend the crop, and $10 of this fee will be donated to support Komen’s mission to find a cure for breast cancer through research, education, screening, and treatment.
Sondra Kirtley, owner of Scrapper’s Edge, sees Scrap Pink as much more than just another fundraiser. “It’s a time to get together, make new friends, work on scrapbooking projects, and raise money for two very good causes.” In addition to supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure campaign, Kirtley is also donating 10% of all her sales on September 28th and 29th to the Humboldt Community Breast Health Project. “I’ve supported the local project every year I’ve been in business and am happy to combine my efforts with the national Scrap Pink event this year,” Kirtley added.
To ensure adequate space, supplies and food for participants, Kirtley recommend that Scrapbookers call in advance of the Scrap Pink crop. To sign up for Scrap Pink or for more details about the local event, call 445-9686 or visit Scrapper’s Edge, located at 728 4th Street in Eureka.
