Bird Walks at Morgan Falls Overlook Park and Dam

January 15, 2022    8:00am

In partnership with the Georgia Audubon Society, the Sandy Springs Recreation and Parks Department will host quarterly bird walks. 

Birding Focus: Morgan Falls Overlook Park boasts several habitats, and thus a large variety of birds over the course of the year: mudflats (shorebirds, including Avocets in 2017), lake (winter ducks, nesting Bald Eagles), river, woodland, and field (sparrows).  The walk will involve (possibly wet) grass, stairs, gently sloped pavement, and unpaved trails.  A scope and loaner binoculars will be available.  We will begin at Overlook Park - walk past the playground and across the lawn to the overlook - then we will walk the road below to Morgan Falls Dam.

Parking: At the end of Morgan Falls Road, turn RIGHT into the free parking lot at Overlook Park. Restrooms are available at the parking lot.

Directions: From GA400, take exit 6 (Northridge Road) and go west until Northridge dead ends at Roswell Road.  Turn left onto Roswell Road and go 1.2 miles. Turn right onto Morgan Falls Road (light).  At the end of Morgan Falls Road, turn right to enter Overlook Park.  The group will meet at the overlook, past the playground.
