The Wildlife of Lake Hartwell

Birds: The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers Hartwell Lake project occupies approximately 80,000 acres of land and water (   ). There are a number of major habitat types on and around the lake. These diverse vegetative communities provide habitats for a variety of shorebirds, waterfowl, field and woodland bird life. The Corps has available on request a publication entitled "Seasonal Checklist of the Birds of Hartwell Lake". This publication lists 256 species of birds that occur regularly at Lake Hartwell, and 27 species that have occurred accidentally.

Wildlife Management: Corps of Engineers foresters and biologists practice wildlife management techniques that improve the habitat for birds and other wildlife.

Canada Geese: A permanent resident flock of Canada Geese has been established on Hartwell Lake. These geese may be seen on the lake at any time of the year.

Endangered Species: Peregrine Falcon and American Bald Eagle may be seen at Hartwell Lake.
