The Georgia Falconry Association will be manning exhibits at JAKES Day at both the Smithgall Woods Conservation Area on Saturday, May 9, 2009 and at the Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center on Saturday, May 16th, 2009. We need several falconers with birds on hand to meet the public and answer questions. For the Smithgall event, plans are to meet at the Huddle House in Helen at 8 AM for breakfast. If you can't make it for breakfast you will need to arrive in time to be set up no later than 9:30 AM. For the Charlie Elliott event, you need to be there in time to be set up by 9:30 AM.

They are expecting a good number at both events and this is an excellent opportunity to educate the public about falconry.
If you can participate at Smithgall Woods, please email Buster Brown or call him at (706) 219-1712 (home), (404) 538-4355 (cell). If you can participate at Charlie Elliott, please email Alan (Smokey) Drury or call him at 678-908-4959.
