Explore Nature Saturday: Reptiles in Winter
January 13th, 2018

Come explore the trails at the Preserve! Three trails offer options for hiking (.25 mi to 1.75mi), all around or near the 10-acre lake. You can bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at the Lake Pavilion or at the Learning Shed. Bring family, friends, or even your leashed dog.

This month's program: Reptiles in Winter. Reptiles are cold-blooded (ectothermic) animals, so how do they keep from freezing to death in cold weather? Learn what various animals in Georgia do to stay alive during the coldest months of the year – hint: they do not hibernate! A live gopher tortoise will be available all day.

Kids can check out Adventure Backpacks to use on the trail and there will be a fun craft at the Learning Shed.

Admission is $3 per person/maximum $10 per family, free to Preserve members.

Explore Nature Saturdays are part of our program of monthly access to the Preserve on the 2nd Sat of each month.

For GPS use: Douthit Bridge Rd, Dallas, GA then follow signs. See Contact Us page for full directions.
