Skidaway Audubon News: Raptors and Reptiles Coming October 29

Courtesy of Skidaway Audubon 

Some slither, some shriek, but all are awesome and coming to Skidaway Island as Georgia Southern’s Wildlife Education Center brings both its raptors and its reptiles show to The Landings on Saturday, October 29.

All are welcomed to come get up-close looks at majestic hawks, tiny owls, and the Georgia Southern mascot, Freedom (a bald eagle) , as well as a variety of fascinating reptiles. This very special event gets underway at 1 p.m. at The Landings' Community Park (600 Landings Way South). This unique opportunity to view and learn about local birds of prey and other wildlife is presented by Skidaway Audubon.

There is no fee for this family-friendly event. Cameras are permitted. However, pets and food are prohibited.

The mission of Skidaway Audubon is to educate and engage residents in programs designed to protect, conserve, and enhance the island’s natural resources. Membership in Friends of Skidaway Audubon helps fund programs that raise environmental awareness within the community. Family memberships begin at just $35.
