Note: this event has changed. Due to the flooding on the south end of Cook's Trail, the trail is closed from the Nature Center entrance. Sandy Creek Park is kindly allowing us to bird the trail from the north end.
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 meet at the parking lot at the end of Campsite Drive.
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.
