Atlanta Audubon is partnering with the Georgia Native Plant Society (GNPS) on their annual Fall Native Plant Sale. During the sale, Atlanta Audubon will be handing out information on bird-friendly plants that attract Wood Thrush and other climate-threatened bird species. During the sale, Atlanta Audubon volunteers will be providing samples of our Cafe Campesino coffee blend, a shade-grown variety, that help protect bird habitat in South America, where the Wood Thrush and other migratory birds spend the winter months.

Migratory Birds & Coffee Trip

What could be better than bird watching and coffee? Not much in our opinion! Join Adam Betuel, Atlanta Audubon Conservation Director, for a fun day of bird watching and coffee sampling at Cafe Campesino, the company that provides Atlanta Audubon Society with it's tasty blend of shade-grown coffee.  

 

We'll meet up at the Atlanta Audubon office and then carpool down to Ocmulgee National Monument (outside of Macon) for a little bird watching. From there we'll drive to Americus, Ga., home to Cafe Campesinos Coffee Company, for lunch (included in trip cost), cupping, coffee tasting, and presentation on how shade-grown coffee helps birds.
