Reptiles Coming October 23

Explore the wonderful world of reptiles as Georgia Southern University’s Wildlife Education Center brings its fascinating, family-friendly live animal presentation to The Landings on Saturday, Oct. 23.

Last year’s visit by the Education Center featured several impressive raptors and was a huge success with more than 100 residents coming out to get up-close looks at majestic hawks and tiny owls.

This year’s event will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. at The Landings Athletic Field (600 Landings Way). This unique opportunity to view and learn about the many reptiles that inhabit this region is courtesy of Skidaway Audubon as part of its efforts to bring environmental education opportunities to the island.

There is no fee for this event, which is open to all. Pre-registration is not required. Cameras are permitted. However, pets and food are prohibited.

The wildlife center supports Georgia Southern’s environmental education programs and provides wildlife encounters for more than 17,000 schoolchildren and area residents annually. Since opening in 1997, the center has grown into one of Georgia’s leading environmental education facilities.

The mission of Skidaway Audubon is to engage residents in programs designed to protect, conserve, and enhance the island’s natural resources. Membership in Friends of Skidaway Audubon (FOSA) is tax-deductible and helps fund programs that raise environmental awareness within the community. Family memberships begin at just $35.  To learn more about other Skidaway Audubon events, or to become a FOSA member, visit or go to the Friends of Skidaway Audubon’s Facebook page.
