Leader: Mary Kimberly Cell contact morning of walk: 404.308.6279

Future dates: Mar 20

Birding Focus: Three main habitats (lake, wetlands, mixed woods) provide good species diversity. We will look for winter residents, including raptors, waterfowl, waders and passerines. This walk is suitable for adults and children over 14 years of age. This site can be especially good for beginning birders.

* Please do not bring your dog.

** Bring binoculars!

Some of the trail is level, but there are several steep spots and a number of stretches where the surface is uneven from exposed tree roots, etc. Many parts of the trail are muddy and/or slippery after rains; plan your footwear accordingly. Restrooms are available at the SW corner of the park, near the baseball fields.

Directions and parking: From I-285 on the north side of Atlanta, take Exit 29. Go south on Ashford Dunwoody Rd. about 0.95 mile, then turn left onto W. Nancy Creek Dr. NE. Drive 0.4 miles to large parking lot on SW corner of Lake by Spillway bridge.
