CANCELED: Bird Walk at the ACC Landfill

Event Date: 
Sunday, May 3, 2020 - 8:05am

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, in conjunction with the Athens-Clarke County Landfill, will be hosting a  Sunday birdwalk at the landfill.  The landfill is a relatively new rotation in our schedule.  We will be meeting about a quarter mile inside the gate off of Lexington Road.  

Please make sure to arrive on time, as the folks at the landfill may need to lock the gate behind us.

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.

If you have any questions please contact Ed Maioriello at 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 the night before for updates.
