The public is invited to learn about the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area, its trails and self-guided tours. The Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Alliance is hosting an open house on May 23, 1-7 p.m., at its office at 3350 Klondike Road, Lithonia (now the city of Stonecrest).

Visitors are welcome to drop in, grab a snack, and speak with staff and board members to learn about the people and places that form the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area (AMNHA).

“We work closely with our community partners to bring awareness of the historic, cultural, and natural resources which are important to our national landscape,” said Mera Cardenas, executive director of the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Alliance. “Having an open house gives our community and visitors an opportunity to understand what we do and learn more about the National Heritage Area.”

Located in Southeast DeKalb County, the AMNHA is an open landscape of breathtaking beauty, peace and wonder. The AMNHA is one of only 49 National Heritage Areas recognized by Congress for its unique contribution to the nation’s development. Encompassing parts of DeKalb, Rockdale and Henry counties, the AMNHA includes more than 30 miles of paved hike/bike trails; historic and natural sites such as the Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve, Panola Mountain State Park, Flat Rock Archives and the Monastery of the Holy Spirit.

Visitors may attend a 15-minute presentation at 1:30 or 6 p.m. for a brief overview of the National Heritage Area.

Parking for the open house is available at the trail head near the office at 3366 Klondike Road. For more information about the open house, call 404-998-8384.
