This 1613-acre Georgia park has an abundance of wildlife, particularly gopher tortoises and buzzards. During winter, 1000s of large birds, which are black and turkey vultures, roost in trees and soar overhead. Yearlong, gopher tortoises may be seen digging their dens in the sandy soil. Alligators, bald eagles, the rare limpkin, herons, indigo snakes and many other species live in this protected Georgia state park.
