Outdoor Wednesday ~ Oatland Island, Georgia
Oatland Island Wildlife Center
It's Outdoor Wednesday over at A Southern Daydreamer so I went digging through my pictures looking for something outdoorsy and found these that Beth and I took last month when we got to spend an entire day doing nothing but enjoy all the beauty that Savannah's coast has to offer.
Like the wonderful Oatland Island Wildlife Center. It had been years since I had been out there and I was pleasantly surprised at all the changes and construction going on..
Education is the keystone of the mission of Oatland Island Wildlife Center. Each year, more than 20,000 students take part in award-winning programs. From marsh ecology boat programs, star labs, to guided tours, there is exciting programs designed for students needs and interests.
More than forty innovative, hands-on opportunities are available all written to satisfy current Georgia Performance Standards (GPS). School Programs are age/grade specific and often feature live animal presentations, guided walks and other inquiry based activities.
We saw more than we got pictures of there is farm animals, birds of prey, bison, white tail deer and many different types of animals the little red foxes looked like you could cuddle with them and how about the baby alligators ... lol
Their handler calls them up just like you would a family pet, they just danced around showing off for everyone ..
We picked up lunch on the way of Blackened shrimp on a spinach salad that was very yummy and had ourselves a little picnic .. hey Miss Beth I think it's time for another play day ...
Happy Wednesday to everyone .. now go check out all the other wonderful bloggers showing off at A Southern Daydreamer bet there is even some beautiful Christmas stuff ...
hugs ya'll, Cherry
