4-H Tidelands Nature Center


Tidelands Nature Center offers hands-on marine environmental science programs for the general public and school groups. Meet a young sea turtle, explore our touch tanks, and observe live alligators, snakes, fish, crabs and many other animals native to Georgia's coast in our exhibit gallery. Take a guided kayak tour of the Jekyll River and tidal marsh. Rent a canoe or pedal boat and enjoy fishing or a relaxing paddle on Rixen Pond. Nature walks and other special programs for families and for school and scout groups are available throughout the year. Learn about Jekyll's coastal ecosystems with one of our guides as you explore Jekyll's beach, forest and marsh.
