It was a bit tricky to locate this facility on the campus of Georgia Southern University. We found the entry fee to be modest, $1 for Seniors. There's a small reception building with a few exhibits, but most of the attraction is out of doors....More

The Wildlife Education center at GSU is one of the best outings in Statesboro! The staff is wonderful and so friendly. They make sure the guests are informed and "entertained" with the flight show and the reptile show.

Didn’t expect a lot but was I ever fooled. There’s an awful lot to see here, beautifully displayed exhibits and trails. If that wasn’t enough it cost me and my husband just one buck each (senior rate) to enjoy it. Do try to get there,...More
