The Animal Exhibits will be closed temporarily May 1-27
while the Visitor Center is under construction for needed repairs. We'll still be open for business with staff on site, programs taking place, and visitors can continue to walk the property, take a cell phone tour, visit the outdoor animal exhibits, and enjoy the preserve while the Visitor Center is closed for repairs.


Our Visitor Center houses dioramas of woodland animals and exhibits of live amphibians, reptiles, and fish.

The Animal Exhibits
are open Monday-Saturday

(closed on major holidays
and access may be restricted during events and programs)

"Animal Encounters" are a fun part of many of our programs, events, summer camps, and birthday parties. They offer a chance to meet an animal up close, learn about their behaviors and needs, and make a memorable connection with the natural world.

Reptiles, amphibians, and fish from our area

Our Native Ectotherm Exhibit is home to a variety of local reptiles, amphibians, and fish. Housed in habitats designed to simulate their natural habitat, visitors can observe natural behaviors and get a close look at species which in the outdoors are often hidden or only seen for an instant.

Free to the public.
Although donations are encouraged to help fund
the feeding and care of our animals.

Our thanks to the following who have contributed to improving and expanding Autrey Mill's animal exhibits:
The MacConnell family, North American Native Fish Association, Georgia Power, Johns Creek Kiwanis, and BB&T Bank (State Bridge Rd branch).


Our outdoor animal exhibits are all located just outside the Visitor Center and are free to the public. Although donations are encouraged to help fund the feeding and care of our animals.

Two of our ducks reside in an oval duck pond built by Leadership Johns Creek and two new ducks reside in the Star Pond.

Two rabbits also live in the oval duck pond area.
