Summer Programs

Summer 2019 Programs Are Now Open!!!

The Center for Wildlife Education offers a variety of summer programs suitable for groups of all ages. In addition to the new summer programs, a 30-minute wildlife themed program for the general public will be presented in the Wildlife Center’s lecture hall or pavilion at 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

The Walk on the Wild Side program is a 1 1/2 hour morning program that includes a rotation at the Wildlife Center’s newest addition: The Waterfowl Pond. It consists of three 30-minute rotations and is a great choice for Kindergarten-College age groups.  The Wild about Summer program is a one-hour program designed for Kindergarten-12th, however, this program can also be tailored for college age groups, adult groups and organizations. The Summer Fledglings is a one hour program designed specifically for Pre-K (ages 4-5). The Summer Wildlife Connections- Past, Present & Future program is strictly for adults and is presented by Steve Hein, the Wildlife Center’s founder and Director.

Summer programs are only available in June, July and August.

All programs are by reservation 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. 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.

It is very important that you arrive on time. Be aware that the preferred time of your program is your start time, not your arrival time. We ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the time you have chosen to start your program.  If you are late it may be necessary to eliminate a rotation or shorten the time of your program to accommodate your trip back and our staffing schedules.  Please take your travel time into consideration when scheduling your program.
