This private non-profit nature center with a Discovery Center that includes a Nature Exchange and Exhibits, plus a Theatre is focused on interpreting the Chattahoochee River Watershed. With 127 acres of woodland and wetland trails the Nature Center has several well marked walking trails and a river boardwalk with rehabilitated animals along the route. Beautiful butterfly gardens and Georgia's eco-regions are emphasized. The Unity Garden is a great place to learn about sustainable community gardening.

This is always fun for a day out with the kids. There are trails to walk, gardens and animals to admire, and an indoor display for when it gets too hot. Especially good for their special events.

Such a wonderful gem! Our family loves the CNC. The kids loved their creature features and have learned a lot from those little presentations. They have great kid friendly hikes we love to go on. Always a fun day at the CNC

This is a nice place to walk around the trails and see the animals they have saved but can't return to the wild. There are also lectures which are suitable for young children. Makes a nice day trip.

Fun and relaxed nature trails. Give yourself plenty time because you will want to get your money's worth. Also bring plenty of water.
