Alpharetta’s Wild Side and the City of Alpharetta are offering a free class to learn about birding on Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 9:00 AM until 10:00 AM. The class will be held at the Mansell House in Wills Park, 1835 Old Milton Pkwy.  Pre-registration is strongly encouraged.

 

Fledgling birdwatchers will learn how to identify common birds by sight and sound before heading outside to put their new ID skills to the test. Wills Park is home to many species of birds.  The class will begin at 9:00 AM in the Mansell House where Nikki Belmonte, Executive Director of Atlanta Audubon Society, will give a short program on birds often seen here.  She will then lead a bird walk through the park to find as many birds as we can.  Some binoculars will be available or you may bring your own.  This class is open to all ages.

 

To register for the Bird Walk and Talk class call 678-297-6200 by September 23rd.  For more information, please contact Terry Porter at tporter@alpharetta.ga.us or 678-297-6213.
