This place was a total surprise to me. If you and your children like animals you will love this place. The employees are very friendly and informative. There is a classroom where children can get a closer view of some of the animals.

Great place to take the family. Spent about 2 hours walking and looking at the beautiful scenery and animals. My favorites were the wolf exhibit and the pond. Best of all it was cheap. The staff was very friendly.

Great for families and nature lovers. They have a wolf pack too!! A petting zoo where kids can feed and pet and some nature classrooms where students of all ages can learn about local environment.

This wildlife center is quite small and very walkable for all ages. Fall is wonderful time of year to visit as all the animals were in full view. Lots of hawks, owls, vultures, cougar, etc. Worth a visit for sure.

I had found this place while researching things to do with my family after I ran the Savannah full marathon. My daughter loves animals, and this was wonderful. It is so inexpensive, and is so worth it! Fortunately for us, it was nice and cool, and many of the animals were very active. The cougar was playing with her pumpkin,... More

4 Grey Wolves were awesome sight. Nice place for them with big windows for us. Well worth the small entrance fee. Very nice people work there.

This place is an interesting way to spend a couple of hours and get some exercise.Part of the path through the center is raised and built of wood. There is so much marshland around that this is necessary. One can view wolves, a bobcat and cougar, deer, bison, and other wildlife. There are birds, snakes, and alligators. With the exception...

This wild life center has a beautiful, shaded two-mile trail that takes you to the different exhibits. You can see bisons, wolves, deer, cougar, bobcat, eagles, etc. The enclosures are large, well shaded and very adequate for good care. A nice place to spend a few hours at a very reasonable price.
