Amicalola Owl3-full

Birds of prey are more common in Georgia than you may think, and the Dahlonega Gold Museum and Historic Site is presenting a program to educate the public on some of Georgia’s native predatory bird species.

The Museum will host "Whose Whoooo is Whose" from 5:30-7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 9.

According to Dahlonega Gold Museum exhibit guide Lynda Bryan, the event will be presented by Amicalola Falls State Park and Lodge interpretive Ranger Loretta Dean.

Dean, according to Bryan, works with birds of prey regularly in a program at Amicalola.

"She is previously a bird rehabilitator for the state, and now she works with predatory birds who have been injured or otherwise can’t function in the wild," said Bryan.

"Whose Whoooo is Whose" is part of an after-hours program at the Gold Museum that features different topics on a monthly basis.

The museum is located at 1 Public Square in Dahlonega. Admission is $6 for adults, $5.50 for seniors and $3.50 for children.
