Great Girl Scout Trip

Juliette Gordon Low and the Beach!
Beautiful, historic Savannah has long been a destination for Girl Scouts and Girl Guides from all over the world visiting the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the first Girl Scouting organization in the world and an advocate for education and strength for girls everywhere. But after your troop visits the historic home, what else are you going to do while in Savannah? Check out the links below for great ideas!

Marine Science Center

The mission of the Tybee Island Marine Science Center is to promote the appreciation, conservation, and understanding of the marine ecosystem of coastal Georgia through education and service. Marine education programs on Tybee Island began in 1987 with beach walks and seining. These classes were offered as an outreach program from the University of Georgia Marine Extension Service. After tremendous response, the outreach program merited a location of its own.

Tybee Island Lighthouse

The Lightstation and Museum are surely a stop you do not want to miss. We encourage you to visit our Gift Shops to support our efforts. We also look forward to seeing you after your journey up our 178 steps to the top. Tours are self guided. At the Lighthouse and Head Keepers Cottage there are volunteers on hand to answer questions.

Dolphin Tours

Behold an abundance of nature as you are traveling: hammocks, beaches and marshes; wildlife from sea turtles to birds; our friendly bottle-nosed dolphin. The dolphin/sightseeing tour is often described by visitors as the high point of their trip to the low country.

Oatland Island Wildlife Center

Oatland Island Wildlife Center currently occupies over 100 acres of maritime forest and exhibits over 50 species of animals. For the past 30 plus years, the center has been introducing school groups and other guests to the wonderful natural wildlife of Georgia and beyond. In 2007, the center was officially renamed the “Oatland Island Wildlife Center.”
