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 - 12:00 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 EarthQuest Birds, and UGA PhD Student, Kristen Lear, will be doing educational activities about bat conservation. For more information, visit www.accgov.com/recycling 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 www.oconeeriversaudubon.org/events the night before for updates.
