ORLT Board Member, Kathy Parker, recently published an article titled, "Tallasee Forest: Avian Gem in the Greenway Necklace." The article highlights the various habitats of the Tallassee Forest and the diverse avian species which use these habitats for foraging, resting during migration, and breeding. Kathy, a retired geographer who travels the world photographing wildlife and landscapes, also included many vibrant shots of bird species that have been found at Tallassee.
Tallassee Forest is a 310-acre conservation easement located on Tallassee Road in Athens. Owned by Athens-Clarke County and slated for public use, it will eventually be open for passive recreation.
