Reservations available for Field Trips and Group Tours.

One of our alligator handlers will give a lesson on the gators – everything from their habitat, what they eat, how they grow, to how we care for them at our facility.

After the lesson, the students are allowed to hold one of our baby gators and take a pic with them.

Following your tour, be sure to shop in the front of the building (which houses the Jeff Davis Parish Visitors Center) to purchase a gator souvenir.

If your group is here around lunchtime, bring a sack lunch and have a picnic at our park. We have pavilions and picnic tables, along with full playground.
