Due to restrictions imposed on gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19 we are canceling this walk. Stay healthy everyone!
The Oconee Rivers Audubon Society will be taking a field trip to Kennesaw Mountain. We will likely join up with an Atlanta Audubon trip going on there at the same time.
We will meet at the Shops of South Athens Shopping Center (behind the Waffle House) on South Milledge near the bypass ready to leave at 6:00AM. This means you will want to arrive at least 5-10 minutes before 6:00AM. We will car pool in as few cars as we can manage.
ORAS field trips and bird walks are open to the public and to birders of all ages and experience levels. You will want to bring binoculars, water, insect repellent and snacks if you so desire. You are encouraged to wear practical shoes and dress for the weather. While the walk consists of hiking up the road to the summit of the mountain and back down again, the pace is leisurely and not particularly strenuous.
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.
