The Oconee Rivers Audubon Society will be hosting a bird walk at the Sandy Creek Park. This walk will also be our Cook's Trail clean up, so please bring a bag to help haul away any litter we find. We will bird from the Cook's Trail trailhead to the Oxbow lake, approximately 2.1 miles, then recover any litter on the way back.
We will be meeting at the last parking lot on campsite drive across the dam and bird the lake from the dam first then proceed down the north end of Cook's Trail.
Folks showing up for the walk do not have to pay the entrance fee; however, if people stay and enjoy the park after the walk, they are asked to pay.
Our bird walks are open to the public. We typically run 3-4 hours. Easy to moderate walking. Please dress for the weather, wear practical shoes, bring insect repellent and snacks/water as desired. Participants can turn around an leave early if needed.
If you have any questions please contact Ed Maioriello at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706-296-5275.
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 www.oconeeriversaudubon.org the night before for updates.
