Nature discovery program on wetlands and Ducks Unlimited set for April 27

Ducks Unlimited is not only for duck hunters! This international nonprofit organization is a leader in the conservation of wetlands for waterfowl habitat. Southern Conservation Trust is hosting a Nature Discovery program with Bill Edwards of Ducks Unlimited Apr. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Flat Creek Nature Center in Peachtree City.

The free program will present information about our common ducks, the Atlantic spring migration flyway and why our local wetlands are so important for ducks. Find out about “dabblers” and what you can do to make our community safer for our waterfowl residents and those just passing through.

The Ducks Unlimited program is one in a series of Nature Discovery programs presented by Southern Conservation Trust on topics relating to the local natural environment and ways to protect it. Southern Conservation Trust is a nonprofit land trust based in Peachtree City that owns and manages over 600 acres of nature preserves in Fayette County.

The program is free, open to the public and suitable for all ages. The location is the Flat Creek Nature Center, adjacent to the Frederick Brown amphitheater, at 201 McIntosh Trail in Peachtree City.
