Free, Fun Event - JAKES Day - at Charlie Elliott on May 7th

SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (4/18/2016)

Come get “wild” at a free outdoor fun day celebrating the 20th annual J.A.K.E.S. DAY at the Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center near Mansfield, Georgia. This free event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sat., May 7, 2016. 

Free admission includes an array of activities that focus on Georgia wildlife, conservation, and outdoor recreational opportunities. Kids can try archery, fishing, shooting sports, fly-casting, tree climbing and can go on a mini-boat ride 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. 

The first 500 kids receive a free hot dog lunch (adults can eat for a nominal fee), thanks to sponsors of the event, the Wildlife Resources Division and the Georgia Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation.  

Before you leave the Charlie Elliott property, be sure to stop by the Visitors’ Center to tour the museum and take advantage of special sales in the gift shop. 

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 Farm Road on the left. Then follow the signs to the Discovery Area.  This event will be held rain or shine.
