One lucky Facebook winner will win family admission to Exotic Birds and Animals on Planet Earth: Family Day, this Saturday, March 6 at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia! Special guest Roy Hodge from Exotic Paradise, Atlanta will educate and entertain family members with his menagerie of exotic forest animals in a live animal presentation.
