Walker County marks Wildlife Day
ROCK SPRING, Ga. (WDEF) — Snakes, eagles and owls were hanging out at the Walker County Local Government Services building on Thursday.
It was all for Wildlife Day. Walker County placed second in a recent competition among Georgia counties to promote the sale of state wildlife tags.
Parents and kids got an up close look at several different animals.
“My favorite part of doing this is educating people about the animals in their own backyard, educating Georgia citizens about Georgia’s natural resources and the wonderful wildlife that is available here,” said Katie Flowers, with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
The upgrade costs for wildlife tags costs $25. 80 percent of that fee goes directly to the Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Resources Division.
