Berry College Wildlife

COVID-19 Update:

Berry College will open it’s campus to the public for recreation beginning June 13 and on weekends only.

The campus will be accessible to the public from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays for outdoor recreation (hiking, biking, running, etc.) Please plan ahead as campus buildings (and restrooms) will not be open. Photo sessions cannot be accommodated at this time.

For the health and safety of the Berry community, the campus will remain closed to the public Monday to Friday. College officials will continue to monitor local, state and campus conditions and will provide updates as needed. Check https://bit.ly/3gwv0UC for more information.

One of Berry’s most distinguishing factors, contributing to both its beauty and grace, is Berry’s vast array of deer. The fantastic ratio of students to deer on campus, is 1:7. The deer do, however, prefer to stay near the edge of the woods, but on occasions they wander in various areas of campus.

Other fauna on campus include various types of avians including bald eagles, waterfowl, coyotes, turkeys, and other indigenous species in northwest Georgia.

Majority of the wildlife stays within the WMA (Wildlife MAnagement Area) boundaries where several controlled hunts are conducted during the year.
