Keeping Georgia Wild Family Festival

May 19, 2018

10am – 2pm

Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center, Mansfield, GA

Looking for a way the whole family can enjoy the outdoors? Come to the Keeping GA WILD family festival on Saturday, May 19 at Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center in Mansfield! This FREE fun-filled event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the CEWC Discovery Area and will be held rain or shine.

Free admission includes an array of activities that focus on Georgia wildlife, conservation, and outdoor recreational opportunities. Kids can try archery, fishing, shooting sports, tree climbing and mini-boat rides led by Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ conservation rangers. Live animal presentations, face painting, solar viewing with the Charlie Elliott Astronomy club, and exhibitors displaying wildlife-themed booths add to the festivities. We will even have special events happening at other parts of the property!

The first 500 kids receive a free event t-shirt. In addition, visitors can enjoy a free hot dog lunch (while supplies last).  All this is thanks to sponsors of the event, the GA DNR Wildlife Resources Division, Georgia Wildlife Federation, & Fellowship of Christian Athletes Outdoors.

New to this year is a gun safety event with Law Enforcement on our gun range.

To get to CEWC, take I-20 to Exit 98. Travel south on Highway 11, go through Mansfield and continue three miles south to the entrance at Marben Farms Road on the left. Then follow the festival signs to the Discovery Area.
