New! With all that's going on in the world right now, we want you to know that Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center is here for you. Since field trips are not an option at this time, we have two educational opportunities that can come to you: outreach programs at your school and virtual experiences online.
Outreach Programs: Explore some of the amazing species and habitats found right here in Georgia. CEWC staff along with some of our live animals will help your class examine the diversity of wildlife from the comfort of your own classroom.
Virtual Experiences: If you are not able to have visitors at your school, consider connecting with Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center virtually. We are offering 25-minute virtual experiences online with some of our animal ambassadors. During the experience, an educator will feature an animal of your choosing and highlight the corresponding GSE Science standards related to that animal.
