Family Day at Nature, Undisturbed coming April 24

Southern Conservation Trust, a community land trust, is hosting a Family Day on Saturday afternoon April 24 during Nature, Undisturbed, a nature photography exhibition at the Dogwood Gallery in Tyrone.

The fun starts at 3 p.m. with a live Birds of Prey program with Dale Arrowood and his Winged Ambassadors. Featured raptors include a vulture, falcon, several owls and two hawks. Visitors can have their photo taken with a rare eagle owl from Russia, the world’s largest owl. Dale’s trained birds have either been raised in captivity or rehabilitated from injuries and cannot survive in the wild. This is a wonderful opportunity to see these magnificent birds up close.

Then enjoy our local greenspace from a bird’s perspective with a free tethered ride on a hot air balloon provided by RE/MAX of Georgia. Balloon rides begin at 5pm, weather permitting, and riders must be over 6 years of age.

Visitors will also enjoy hot dogs, face painting and nature crafts.

Nature, Undisturbed is a two week nature photography exhibition at the Dogwood Gallery kicking off April 16th that celebrates the glory of wildlife and our natural landscapes. Sixty photographs were chosen out of 400 entries from 10 states.

Other events during the Exhibition include a presentation on Saturday evening April 17th. by Susan Todd-Raque about collecting photography with a wine and cheese tasting. Proceeds from the sale of photographs will help maintain the Trust’s three public nature preserves - Sams Lake Sanctuary south of Fayetteville, and Line Creek and Flat Creek Nature Areas in Peachtree City. Dogwood Gallery is located next to the Legacy Theater on Hwy 74 in Tyrone, at 1175 Senoia Rd.
