OAGC sets to get ‘WILD’!

OAGC is heading to The Wilds on September 29, 2018!

Your OAGC Team is planning a WILD year, with new ideas and  opportunities galore! To jumpstart the new term, we offer you a chance to go WILD in the beautiful rolling hills of Ohio at the world reknowned WILDlife center, the WILDS!! Located about 25 minutes south of I-70, on over 9000 acres of land reclaimed from stripmines and donated by AEP as a wildlife refuge, 26 species of exotic animals roam freely. We invite you to bring your friends, families, and kids of all ages to join us for WILDly wonderful adventures. The WILDS offers several levels of tours:

1. The WILDS Safari tour: over two hours of information from your guide, in an open-sided bus, as you see firsthand the WILDlife along the trail. $25 (no meal, but picnic lunches are permitted and concession stands are available). Maximum of 30 per bus. Tour at 11 am.

  1. The WILDSIDE premium Safari: over two hours in an open truck as WILDlife management professionals drive you right up close to the animals , so you can feed and pet the WILD creatures. Limited to 8 guests per vehicle. $100, tours offered at 9 am, 12:30 pm and 3:30 pm.
  2. The Super Sunset Supper WILDlife tour: over two hours around the park in open side bus, as the management staff takes you to the Carnivore Center, where the animals are being fed Then you will be fed with a hearty full-course buffet at sunset, on the patio at the Overlook.
