Spring Bird Walk at Sams Lake Sanctuary, Apr. 17

Join fellow nature lovers on a fun and informative morning Bird Walk on Saturday, April 17th at Sams Lake Sanctuary in Fayette County.  Brock Hutchins will lead the guided walk at the scenic wetland preserve owned by Southern Conservation Trust.

Hutchins has led many field trips and is the coordinator of the Peachtree City Christmas Bird Count for Audubon.

Sams Lake was donated to the Trust by the Ferrol Sams family in 1995.  The shallow ponds and nesting islands draw many native and migrating bird species, including green and blue heron, egrets and hawks. 

Visitors may also see wild turkey, deer, beaver and armadillos. 

Southern Conservation Trust is a local conservation organization that owns, manages and protects over 1300 acres of environmentally sensitive land in the Southern Crescent.  The Trust manages the Flat Creek and Line Creek Nature Areas in Peachtree City and is currently developing a new preserve near the Flint River.

As a community land trust the Trust also works with willing property owners to protect their land with a conservation easement that may provide significant tax benefits.
Saturday’s participants should bring binoculars and meet at the Sams Lake parking lot on Old Senoia Rd at 7:30 am.  For directions or more information about community conservation and Southern Conservation Trust, visit the Trust’s website
