Oconee’s only Wild life Refuge (the Hardigree Wild Life
Sanctuary) Off Hwy 15 (1110 Old Greensboro Hwy). Turn
left at the Recycling Center about 2 miles south of
Watkinsville on Hwy 15. Follow the graveled road to the second right entrance (the first one is gated and marked with name; the second entrance by the green house on the right is loose gravel and leads into the Sanctuary. Follow the road until you reach the pavilion by the small lake. This is the land owned by the
Oconee River RC&D (Resource, Conservation and Development) - an organization that assists all farmers that live in the 14 county area.
Why: To celebrate the retirement of long-time employee Jim Wren who has worked tirelessly on the Hardigree Sanctuary to finish what can be used as a meeting place to study wild life. He is on the last leg of completion: installing the bathrooms and paving the parking lot. Any and all proceeds will go into the Wildlife Sanctuary Fund of the non-profit RC&D to make these completions.
Cost: Only $10.00 per person for 3 hours of food and entertainment
