Nature Watching

Bird Watching GopherDiverse geography, topography and climate zones in Georgia create an incredible variety when it comes to natural habitats and native wildlife. Easily, one can say the most exciting thing to do at Georgia State Parks is to simply observe nature around you. In addition, Georgia’s location along a migratory route ensures seasonal wildlife that never fails to fascinate and entertain. This is most evident when it comes to the number of different birds you may spot in our parks. There are over 300 species, including colorful examples such as painted buntings, ruby throated hummingbirds, bald eagles, wood storks and great egrets.

From river otter to raccoon, bullfrog to salamander, gopher tortoise to sea turtle, the variety of wildlife makes even the shortest trail seem endless with possibilities. And that’s not counting the alligators: prehistoric looking creatures that patrol the swampy regions—while amazing wide-eyed guests—in the southern most parts of the state. For waterfall lovers, we have many to explore. Read about them on 365AtlantaFamily. Your destination park may offer guided nature watching tours, on foot or in a boat. In addition, it may be possible to arrange private group tours in advance.
