Wildlife Legend Jim Fowler Takes Center Stage at Oxbow Meadows

Jim Fowler, wildlife conservationist, former host of “The Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom” and animal correspondent for NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” will take center stage this weekend at Columbus State’s Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center.

The Emmy Award-winning TV personality will help host two “Birds of Prey” shows at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 28 at the environmental learning center on South Lumpkin Road. Visitors will have an opportunity to meet Fowler after each program.

“Jim will bring generations of environmental enthusiasts together for one awesome show that we hope will generate enthusiasm for wildlife conservation in our community,” said Jan Kent, assistant director for Oxbow Meadows.

Kent said all ages are sure to enjoy the show, which will be led by handlers from EarthQuest, a nonprofit environmental education organization located in Pine Mountain Valley, Georgia that specializes in live animal presentations.
