Latino Conservation Week, July 16-24, 2016

 

Latino Conservation Week: Disfrutando y Conservando Nuestra Tierra is an initiative of Hispanic Access Foundation (HAF), a national nonprofit that works to improve the lives of Hispanics in the United States and promotes civic engagement by educating, motivating, and helping them to access trustworthy support systems. HAF created and is leading the first Latino Conservation Week to support the Latino community getting into the outdoors and participating in activities to protect our natural resources. During this week, Latino community and faith-based organizations will go on hiking or camping outings, learn about conservation efforts in their community, and show their support for permanently protecting our land, water, and air.

Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary Tour

Saturday, September 17, 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM

(Event will be held rain or shine!)

 

Atlanta Audubon Society will host its annual Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary Tour on Saturday, September 17, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The tour will feature five properties in Cobb County, Ga. All properties are located north of I-20 and west of I-75 and include locations in Marietta, Smyrna, Austell, and Mableton. A complete listing of tour addresses will be sent to ticket purchasers the week before the event.

 

 

 

Each property has been certified by Atlanta Audubon Society as a Certified Wildlife Sanctuary because it provides five essential criteria for attracting wildlife and birds: food sources, nesting sites, bird feeders, shelter, and water sources. Visitors will see a wide variety of native plants and trees in a variety of different settings that attract a variety of birds, butterflies and other wildlife. Atlanta Audubon staff and volunteers will be available at each site to guide visitors through the habitats.

 

 

Tickets are $15 for Atlanta Audubon Society members and $20 for non-members. Children aged 12 and under are free when accompanied by a paying adult. Tickets will also be available on the day of the event at each of the tour locations.

 

Proceeds from the tour support the education and conservation efforts of Atlanta Audubon Society.


Volunteer Opportunity: Invasive Plant Pull at The Confluence

Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016

The Confluence, accessed at the terminus of Armand Road off of Lindbergh Drive, Atlanta

 

Atlanta Audubon Society needs volunteers to assist with an invasive plant pull and habitat restoration day at The Confluence Park, where the north and south forks of Peachtree Creek meet near Lindbergh. The Confluence is one of two habitat restoration sites designated on Atlanta Audubon’s National Fish and Wildlife Foundation 5-Star Grant. As part of this effort, Atlanta Audubon and it’s many partners have been removing invasive toxic species, planting native species, and conducting avian surveys.

 

Volunteers are needed to help remove invasive plants, check on recently planted native species, spread wood chips on trails, and clear other brush. Groups are welcome!  For more information or to volunteer, email Adam Betuel at Adam@atlantaaudubon.org.
