Atlanta Audubon is pleased to partner with the Cubihatcha Outdoor Center to offer a unique field trip to tour the beautiful forests, wetlands, and drinking reservoirs of this wetland enhancement and protection corridor.  Built in 1999, the center encompasses almost 1,000 contiguous acres designated to protect and improve wildlife habitats, while also providing a space for public education and enjoyment.  Participants will be treated to a boat tour of one of the reservoirs, where we will explore a variety of habitats. In addition to many species of songbirds, we may see Mallard and Wood Duck families, as well as nesting herons, cormorants, osprey, and perhaps a Bald Eagle!  Swallows and Purple Martins also promise to provide a show.  We’ll also learn about the Wood Duck conservation efforts being done at the center.  Space is limited to 15 participants.  This trip is free, but registration is required at  https://atlaudubon.z2systems.com/event.jsp?event=237&.  Further details will be emailed to participants.
