Gone Virtual: Keeping Georgia Wild Festival Celebrates All Week


This year, everyone can participate in the annual Keeping Georgia Wild Festival at the Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center because most of it will be virtual!

Join in the fun all week long, May 10–15, as we present various activities and educational presentations to engage all ages. And, did we mention the chance to win a prize?

Activities that will take place virtually include fishing and kayaking instruction, watch wildlife getting crafty, and hiking and camping tips. After all the week’s virtual activities, get ready for two in-person events, including a kids fishing event and tree climbing (pre-registration required) on Saturday, May 15.

Want to win a prize pack sponsored by Keeping Georgia Wild Day partners? Head outside on May 15 and snap a picture of yourself doing an outdoor activity. Post the picture on social media with the hashtag #KeepingGeorgiaWild and tag Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center (on Facebook). You will be entered to win some outdoor goodies!

Sponsors of this year’s event include the National Wild Turkey Federation, Georgia Wildlife Federation, Fellowship of Christian Athletes Outdoors, and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division.
