Connecting the trails at Cohotate Preserve with Brandow Point and the Willows has been a goal - how it is a reality. Thanks to the owners of the private land between the two public areas who gave permission to cross and to volunteers who cleared and marked the trail. The connecting trail starts from the red trail where it is closest to the river. Give it a try, but please respect the private property and stay on the marked trail.
Balancing Sound Development & Effective Conservation
New Trail Connecting Brandow Point and Cohotate
We had a great turnout for our birdhouse building event with 40+ kids of all ages coming to the Willows to build a birdhouse and birdfeeder to take home, take a hike, learn to use binoculars, and roll down the hill. Thanks to the Athens Sportsmen’s Club for preparing the birdhouse kits and helping with the building. And thanks to the Athens Community Foundation for helping the Sportsmen pay for the materials.
Budding architects created some innovative homes for the fairies at the Willows at Brandow Point. Thanks to all the architects and their assistants for another fun day of fairy house building.
