Watch the eagles take flight, touch our lime-green friend, Monty the Python, or explore the different habitats of raptors, reptiles and mammals at the Center for Wildlife Education and the Lamar Q Ball Jr. Raptor Center. With more than five acres featuring diverse habitats and species, an amphitheater, and an indoor classroom, get ready to take a walk on the wild side!

Recently opened in 2018, the Center also features an invasive species exhibit, showing all the various species that are currently "attacking" Georgia.

The Center features a 12-acre wetland preserve that includes a small pond and capture basin that houses a beaver lodge, a cypress pond and a waterfowl pond. Resident species of birds of prey include eagles, hawks, owls, falcons, kestrels and vultures. Reptiles and amphibians also on display. On Saturdays, see flighted raptor demonstrations (weather permitting), or stroll along our self-guided nature walks, and visit the Children's Discovery Trail.
