Spring Walk & Talks

event teaser for web

Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 22nd and Saturday, May 6th. Each Walk & Talk will showcase different flora and fauna so you can choose one or both!

Join us for a Nature Walk and Talk guided by Professor of Biology at The University of West Georgia, Toby Saunders (MS Biology).

Enjoy an approximately two-hour trek along the beautiful trails of Snake Creek and explore our unique ecosystem while learning about the plant life at Banning Mills, some of which is usually found in the Blue Ridge region only. Snake Creek Gorge is a mysterious place!

Returning from your hike, lunch will be provided in the Main Lodge.

The cost is $44.99 per person which includes the guided hike and a hearty lunch at the lodge. The lunch menu and booking option will be posted soon.

The walk is moderate. A few steeper rocks and small hills to climb. We will mostly be following Snake Creek so there won't be major hills but will have rocks to navigate.

Birds of Prey Nature Shows

Get up close to some of nature's most incredible creatures!

Along with our feathered staff, Conservationist, and Master Falconer Dale Arrowood of Winged Ambassadors will give you a live and exciting show. Enjoy live flight demonstrations as you learn about Georgia's indigenous birds of prey.

The cost per person is only $7 and free for children 4 and under. We do not pre-sell tickets for this event. Simply pay in the main lodge before the show!

Shows begin at 10:30 a.m.
