Admission is $10.00 per child, $5 per adult, CASH ONLY!  Children must be accompanied by an adult. The remainder of Oatland’s trail will be closed.

            Oatland Island Wildlife Center is a unit of the Savannah-Chatham County Schools located 5 miles east of Savannah off Islands Expressway. 

It serves as a field trip site for school children to learn about natural and environmental science. The Center encompasses a total of 175 acres of salt marsh, freshwater wetlands, and maritime forest habitats, and has a 2 mile long “Native Animal Nature Trail” where live indigenous animals may be viewed. Fund-raising events, such as the “Halloween Hike”, help offset the costs of animal care and habitat maintenance. Oatland is open to the public daily (except holidays) from 10-4 for self-guided trail walks. Visit their web site: for more information.


$10 per child; $5 per adult
