FSC Bird Watching Tours

Fernbank Science Center, in conjunction with the Stone Mountain Memorial Association, will offer two bird watching tours at Stone Mountain Park this Fall on September 30th and October 21st.  If you have an interest in birds, the tours will be a great way to see and learn about birds in their natural environment.  The tours will begin at 8:00 a.m. and will last until approximately 10:00 a.m.  Please bring your own binoculars. Bird checklists will be provided. This is a great way to meet people who share your interest in birds. We hope to see you there!
