This is a great place to visit. The kids enjoyed the playground and walking the trails. During the wildlife program, you are allowed to touch some of the animals. The program was very informative.

The center is a nice size for children to explore and have fun. Luckily the bird show was scheduled twice - one in the morning and one in the afternoon (despite the website noting only the afternoon showing). The birds and the educators were fabulous and very entertaining. The bird show was certainly a highlight for us. The kids also... More

The weekly story time with small craft project was a perfect activity for our summer. The playground is nicely shaded and is pretty decent though it is geared more toward the over 5yo crowd. There are not a ton of animal exhibits but there is a nice trail to walk on. The annual pass if more than affordable and makes... More

I run a nature center and am a professional educator/administrator. Georgia Southern has done an excellent job with this center and the grounds. Nice trails, wildlife exhibits and friendly staff. My kids learned a lot and enjoyed seeing the wildlife. I was impressed with their interactive areas, graphics, and grounds. They have done a lot for a university supported facility... More

This should be a don't miss visit when coming to Statesboro. It's great to wander through the Wild Life area to see hawks, eagles and owls in a natural setting, but come to a flight demo if you have the time.

My family and my niece went there one weekend and I was slightly disappointed by the fact that they had the birds tethered to trees and not free flying in their exhibits. It was raining that day as well. Nice place that was the only let down.

We went with a school group and had a tour guide. The kids loved it. The animals both indoor and out were a great hit and the guide was very good with the kids. It would be fun in a smaller group like a family outing but would be a bit shorter of an outing. We love it!
