A great little spot to spend the day with younger children who enjoy nature. Not a lot of bells and whistles, but beautiful and very educational. They have a terrific birthday party package for the preschool set.

I am glad I come to this beautiful place. I read book and enjoy the nature. Listen to the bird singing! Just relax! First day in Georgia! Tomorrow I will leave this beautiful state and go back Orlando. Road trip is pretty cool, visit lots of nature places. Never get tired of green!

Wanted to get out and see some of the local wildlife and found this place online. Wide variety of birds, including many owls to view, in a nice setting. Varied walking trails and an intersting nature center for the kids.

The guide was fabulous, and she handled the children very well. She was informative and we learned more than ever about native Georgia wildlife. Lots more fun than Monkey Joe's to me! My daughter said it was her favorite birthday party ever.

This was one of my favorite places to go as a kid! I also use to take the kids I babysat and my younger cousins. It's free (but you really should donate to a great cause) and a great place to take a picnic. The hours can be weird, so I would check their website and/or call ahead.
