One of the Center’s Eurasian Eagle Owls takes flight over the heads of students during a field trip.

The Center for Wildlife Education offers a variety of programs for all age groups and class sizes. If you are unable to secure a date to visit the Center, we also offer the option of having an outreach program presented at your school or event.


All field trip programs are by reservation only and must be made at least a week in advance. Wear comfortable shoes and appropriate clothing for an exciting and educational outdoor experience. Indoor accommodations MAY be available in the event of inclement weather during your field trip. Restrooms, water fountains, and vending machines are available on site. Picnics & sack lunches are welcome.  Use of the outdoor Ecology Pavilion for your lunch is available at no extra charge but must be reserved when you register.  If you would like to have your lunch catered by Georgia Southern Catering please contact them directly at 912-478-8681.
