International Vulture Awareness Day

Event Date: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017 - 8:00am to 1:00pm


Join the ACC Solid Waste Department/Recycling Division, Bear Hollow Zoo, and the Oconee River Audubon Society as they celebrate International Vulture Awareness Day from 8:00 AM  - 1:00 PM at the ACC Landfill.  Vultures are vital to healthy ecosystems and face a range of threats in many areas that they occur.  This day will celebrate nature's clean-up crew, the vulture, with the following local activities: bird walks, children's activities, recycling opportunities, tour of the landfill, and a visit from a captive vulture.  For more information, visit or call the ACC Recycling Division at (706) 613-3512.  This event is a FREE fun, family event!   


IMPORTANT NOTE: On occasion, field trips may have to be cancelled (bad weather, etc.) or important details may change (for example, the original meeting spot for a site may have to be changed if there is a trail closure or parking problem). If you plan to attend a birdwalk, ALWAYS check the night before for updates.
