Songbirds, Water and Wildflowers in Dawson Forest

April 15, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

The Dawson Forest is a little known greenspace treasure owned by the City of Atlanta just one hour north near Dawsonville. This nearly 10,000 acre tract has an odd history, and today serves as a valuable forest reserve. A wide array of migratory songbirds nest here or pass through en route to the northern US and Canada, so we may get a chance to see and hear some of these colorful migrants.

We’ll also walk to a beautiful creek that joins the Etowah River. There is an unusually rich array of native wildflowers located along the path as well. 

We’ll have a snack or a picnic lunch at the creek, and it has become a tradition — optional of course — for our group to stop by a superb Mexican cafe and supermercado in Cumming on the way home. 

To register, click HERE.  Details and directions will be sent to registered participants. 

A donation of $15 or more helps sustain our programs.
