Alpharetta's Wild Side Brings A Bird Walk & Talk To YMCA

Released October 27, 2017 01:52 PM

Alpharetta’s Wild Side and the City of Alpharetta are offering a free class to learn about birding on Saturday, November 11, 2017 from 10:00 AM until 11:30 AM. The class will be hosted by and held at the Ed Isakson/Alpharetta Family YMCA, 3655 Preston Ridge Rd, Alpharetta, GA 30005.


Fledging birdwatchers will learn how to identify common birds by sight and sound before heading outside to put their new ID skills to the test. The YMCA and Big Creek Greenway are home to many species of birds.  The class will begin at 10:00 AM in the Teen Center of the “YMCA” 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 general area 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.


Please register for this class on Eventbrite at or by calling 678-297-6200 by November 10th.  For more information, please contact Terry Porter at or 678-297-6213.
