Located within the campus of GSU, it's surprisingly large with multiple outdoor walking paths where you can see various creatures from opossums, skunks to hawks and bald eagles. If you want to make it a short trip, there's a smaller walking path, or you can take a longer one and see even more animals and read about them. It also... More

Great place to take your youngions for 1-3 hour tour to this hidden gem. They have few reptiles, birds and small exhibits. They have shows with bald eagles,Hawks and owls which is awesome. Check the days as they are not available on every day. Overall nice getaway for couple hours for small families with very young children. 1-3 hours. They... More

Nice place have fun w family. Before heading ahead, call the park to be sure you will actually see the different kind of animals. During hot months like this one, animals are just at the park early in the mornings. If you arrive after 2 o clock it is almost sure you wouldn't see them, the reason why: they protect... More

We were fortunate to get kind of a "private" raptor show for an event we were attending in the area. This is an excellent facility and I'd highly recommend you vist to see the raptor demonstration.

We saw a bird show here. The director of the facility, Steve, was passionate about his craft. If you get the chance to see this bird show, don't miss it. You will be talking about it for weeks.

This is a great place to take your family to. The animals are pretty interesting, especially the assortment of birds of prey. Great photo opportunities available.

This is a wonderful place to spend the afternoon or just an hour. Children and adults can always be amazed with the wonderful and informative staff and the experience of being in touch with nature. They have a great summer camp for children and programs everyday. I am always puzzled why more locals do not take advantage of this facility.... More

Dropped in on a Saturday afternoon just to see what the Raptor Center was all about. My family , friends and I stayed for over an hour and caught the "Birds of Prey" show. The show consists of about 5-6 birds that will occasionally fly around among the audience. The show caps off with an owl that has a 55"... More

I actually went here by myself during the 'quiet' hours, which is, in my opinion, the best time to come. The quiet actually allows you to get up close to the railing which means you get up close to the birds and other wildlife. By other wildlife, I mean the mass amount of squirrels that will run around you and... More

Located on the GSU campus, the "Raptor Center" has 13 acres of trails explaining the eco system of South Georgia. Along the way, live "raptors"...birds are on display. The reptile and bird show were worth the wait.
