Dougherty County - Merck and Company is donating money and manpower to create a wildlife observatory at Radium Springs. Merck used a nearly 47,500 environmental awareness grant to landscape the overlook on the bank of the springs adjacent to the old casino.

Merck employees also planted dozens of trees and shrubs and helped clean up the area. "It's a beautiful area that many people take for granted," said Merck Environmental Services Director Stacey Stckman. "They drive by and can't see it. We've had several people come out on the Saturdays that we were out here and they were just in awe of how beautiful it is. It's been very exciting."

The County and the DNR built the walking trail and observation point at Radium Springs. Merck plans to add educational wildlife displays and picnic tables soon. The new wildlife observation point will be dedicated on April 17, 2004, but you can already go out and enjoy the site.
