Audubon chapters and other wildlife groups in Georgia already are calling on members to provide data about birds and other wildlife along the Ocmulgee for the study.
The effort to establish the park was kicked off largely by the Ocmulgee National Park and Preserve Initiative, a Middle Georgia citizens group (ocmulgeepark.org). The resource study for the project was authorized by Congress in March with the passage of the so-called Dingell Act, which President Trump signed into law.
IN THE SKY: From David Dundee, Tellus Science Museum astronomer: The moon will be in first quarter on Tuesday night. Venus is very low in the west just after dark and sets shortly thereafter. Mars is low in the east just before dawn. Jupiter is low in the southwest at dusk and sets shortly thereafter. Saturn is low in the south just after dark and sets in the west about three hours later.
