Great for whiling away a few hours alone or with the family. The flight show is worth the trip. Summer camp options for children are fun and educational.

I wonder how many Georgia Southern students never set foot in this facility while they are enrolled. It's small but it's free for students and only $2 for adults. They have very comfortable, shaded walking trails with a cushiony recycled rubber walking paths. They do have raptors on display in natural settings but some are chained in place for viewing....

Wonderful place to visit!! My niece had a great time seeing the birds, the turtles and even got to hold a snake. There is a different show daily at 3pm. I wish it were earlier because that is the time my children get out of school and I can't be two places at once.

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

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.
