GPBS Georgia Outdoors: SANCTUARY recently featured YRWS!
If you’re looking for a fun and interesting way to spend a morning, or the afternoon, look no further! The Yellow River Game Ranch is under new management and has undergone extensive renovations to provide the animals here with the best possible environment, care, and quality of life. Come visit the NEW YELLOW RIVER WILDLIFE SANCTUARY in central Gwinnett alongside the Yellow River, just minutes from Stone Mountain Park.
Officially a wildlife sanctuary, YRWS is still home to the original Bison herd, peacocks, and pigs. Come meet all of the new additions including albino wallabies, Babydoll sheep, Fallow deer, ring-tailed lemurs, alpacas, and much more. Interact with some in our Petting Zoo and learn exciting facts through our interactive exhibits and Keeper Talks.
Our facility, programs, and website are still a work in progress so check back often and plan return visits. We appreciate all of the support from our community and can’t wait for you to come.
