Our Visitor Center houses dioramas of woodland animals and exhibits of live amphibians and reptiles.
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.
Occasionally the public is invited to watch our exhibit animals being fed. Join us to see what, and how, our snakes, turtles, frogs, fish, and other animals eat!

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.

Two of our ducks reside in an oval duck pond built by Leadership Johns Creek and two new ducks reside in the Star Pond. Both ponds are just outsid the Visitor Center.
Two rabbits also live in the oval duck pond area.
Pebbles, our Spurred Tortoise has an outdoor habitat next to the Star Pond where he can often be found during Visitor Center open hours.
