Oatland Birzer Deer2Oatland Island Wildlife Center in Savannah is preparing for a busy season at the wildlife preserve as winter melts into spring and summer.

On Saturday, March 7, the center offers Spring Fest: Sheep to Shawl to welcome the upcoming season

“It’s about spring, the growth of new plants, and about a diversity of things. It’s a family-focused festival happening at our heritage homesite, our 1800s cabins,” said Michelle Kelly, resident naturalist at Oatland Island. “We house the Fiber Guild of Savannah who helps us out with this festival, because they will set up their spinning, weaving, carding of the hair and everything, and will also provide crafts and activities for our guests. We’ll also have live music, games, etc.”
