Event Flyer for Vulture Fest on Oct. 22, 2022.

This Saturday, October 22nd, the Athens-Clarke County's Recycling and Waste Reduction Department holds it’s 9th Annual Vulture Festival to honor the birds that the department calls “nature’s clean up crew.”

WUGA’s Robin Whetstone and Cathy Bradberry attended last-year’s festival, and gave us a “bird’s-eye” view of the celebration. Today, we’re bringing you an encore of that story.

This year’s Vulture Fest will be held on Saturday, October 22, from 8am – 12 pm at the Athens Clarke County Landfill Outdoor Classroom, located at 5700 Lexington Rd. Winterville, GA. For more information and a schedule of events, go to accgov.com and search for Vulture Festival.
