Georgia College Helps Develop Rock Hawk

Georgia College students and faculty helped develop Putnam County’s Rock Hawk Effigy and Trails into an educational attraction.

During the past 18 months, Georgia College students and faculty have developed marketing plan, a website and conducted materials for the history and bird signs that line the trails through the forest to the effigy.

All that hard work paid off Friday with Rock Hawk’s opening celebration, where President Dorothy Leland was one of the featured speakers to celebrate the culmination of the 10-year, $1 million project.

“Our students and faculty worked closely with other sponsors to create an attraction where recreational activities blend with an outdoor classroom that serves all age groups,” said Dr. Leland. “Georgia College is proud to be a partner in this project.”

The historic effigy, built using milky quartz rocks, forms a hawk appearing to fly southeast.
