Noonday Creek Chimney Swift Tower

Highlights

  • 12 feet tall
  • Custom-designed and hand-painted by local artist
  • Creates a habitat for local birds

In 2020, the Georgia Audubon and the Town Center Community Alliance partnered to install a 12-foot chimney swift tower along the Noonday Creek Trail. Designed to mimic an actual chimney, the tower serves as a roosting and nesting habitat for chimney swifts, a near-threatened migratory bird that spends summer months in our area. Atlanta-based muralist Christina Ward designed and painted the tower to add a public art element to the installation. The site also includes educational signage that highlights the value of the swifts and the construction of such towers to support conservation.
