Georgia Southern University Center for Wildlife Education Hosts Celebration
Georgia Southern University’s Center for Wildlife Education will hold a ‘Center After Dark” celebration on Saturday, March 13, 2010 from 6:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. to kick off National Wildlife Education week. The evening will feature children’s activities and games in addition to the viewing of the film, Life in Cold Blood, with its award-winning cinematographer David Wright. Life in Cold Blood is a nature documentary about strange and exotic cold-blooded animals from around the world. Wright’s work as a natural history photographer and film maker has been featured on the Discovery Channel, the National Geographic Channel and the BBC. Wright will be on hand to talk about his adventures shooting the film and the cold blooded creatures he features in it. The film will be shown on a big screen outdoors in the Wetland Preserve area. Admission for the entire event is $2 for adults and $1 for children age 3-11, while children under the age of 3 will be admitted free of charge. Each child that brings a teddy bear to be donated to Prevent Child Abuse Bulloch County will also be admitted free of charge. While baked goods and soft drinks will be available for purchase, families may also bring a picnic to enjoy in the Center’s new Wetland Preserve area. The Center for Wildlife Education is located on the Georgia Southern University campus in Statesboro, just off of Sweetheart Circle.
