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.

Reptiles and amphibians from our area

Our Native Ectotherm Exhibit is home to a variety of local reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. 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.

Thanks to the Johns Creek Kiwanis club and the BB&T Bank on State Bridge Rd. which have helped fund some of the larger exhibit habitats.
Thanks to the MacConnell family who have improved the habitats and help care for the animals.

Expanding our Animal Exhibits

As part of a plan to expand our animal exhibits, we were excited to introduce Penny and Lenny last summer, two rabbits residing in our duck enclosure. 

Recently corn snakes Pop and Niblet joined Kernel, so visitors can now see 3 examples of these beautiful animals!

Autrey Mill's Ponds

Our two ducks reside in a duck pond built by Leadership Johns Creek.
Please keep our ducks healthy - only feed ducks food provided by Autrey Mill.

Star Pond

In the Visitor Center's courtyard is a small fish pond shaped like a star
an outdoor habitat for Pebbles, our tortoise, and 2 new ducks.
