The Oconee Rivers Audubon Society will host a field trip to
Phinizy Swamp and the Boral (formerly Merry Brothers) Brick Yard
Ponds in Augusta-Richmond County. We will be leaving from the
Wal-Mart parking lot on the East side of Athens at 6:00AM on
Saturday December 8th. We will try to carpool as much as
possible. For those that would like to meet us there we expect
to arrive in the parking area of Phinizy Swamp Nature Park in
Augusta around 8:00AM. We expect to arrive back in Athens
There will be a 10K race being held that day starting at the same time, but in the past such events have not been a problem for us birding.
You are encouraged to pack a lunch and bring plenty of water.
Dress for the weather and wear practical shoes. Bring
binoculars and scope if desired, but try not to leave anything
in your car as there have been break-ins in the past.
Please feel free to contact me via email or at 706-296-5275 if
you have any questions.
