Bird Walk at the Athens Landfill

Event Date: 
Sunday, October 21, 2012 - 8:00am

The Oconee Rivers Audubon Society, in conjunction with the Athens-Clarke County Landfill, will be hosting a special Sunday birdwalk at the landfill on October 21st.  The landfill is a new rotation in our schedule, and this year's spring trip there was spectacular as there is rich and diverse habitat.  In particular, we are hoping for migrating fall Sparrows.  We will be meeting about a quarter mile inside the gate off of Lexington Road.

Our bird walks are open to the public.  We typically run 3-4 hours though birders may leave at their convenience.  Easy to moderate walking.  Please dress for the weather, wear practical shoes, bring insect repellent and snacks/water as desired.
