ANNOUNCEMENT

Georgia 4-H has no higher priority than the health and safety of guests and staff members.  To learn more about how we are pledging our head, heart, and hands to promote healthy 4-H facilities, please read “Georgia 4-H Facilities: COVID-19 Response.”
To learn more about what we offer and who we serve at 4-H facilities, please read “Georgia 4-H Facilities – Overview.”

COVID-19 UPDATE: The nature center is open! To do our best to keep guests, staff, and our animals safe we have shortened our hours to allow for extra cleaning and sanitizing. Guests and staff will be required to wear face masks indoors at Tidelands. Social distancing is also required so we have limited capacity for visitors. In another effort to keep everyone (human and animal) healthy, we have closed our touch tanks and removed some interactive exhibits. Guided kayak tours are available on a limited schedule as are canoe rentals. Please call 912-635-5032 for reservations. We are excited to welcome guests and share what we know about Georgia’s coastal ecology and its inhabitants! 

Nestled on the southwest side of Jekyll Island, next to the salt marsh on the pristine ’Tidelands’ pond, is one of Jekyll’s hidden treasures. 4-H Tidelands Nature Center offers hands-on coastal ecology programs for the general public and school groups, guided kayak tours, canoe rentals, and a live coastal species exhibit gallery. In keeping with Georgia 4-H Environmental Education program objectives, Tidelands strives to develop an awareness, knowledge, and appreciation for the environment, as we connect participants with Georgia’s coastal ecosystems. Check out all that we have to offer!
