“Unique learning experiences on the river”
The Chattahoochee Nature Center is located on the Chattahoochee River in Roswell and sits on a beautiful site comprised of 127 acres of native plants and gardens that showcase the beauty of Georgia. It has a River Boardwalk, Discovery Center, wetland demonstration gardens and woodland trails that are home to over 50 species of injured, non-releasable wildlife. For 30 years, this facility has continued to grow and reach out to citizens as a place to explore new ideas and expand the awareness of the natural world. The nature center “movement” began more than 60 years ago as people became increasingly aware of the connections between their activities and the health and diversity of the natural world. There was a groundswell of citizen activism throughout the U.S.; hundreds of nature centers were opened as communities undertook the task of educating themselves about ecology – the emerging scientific field that would lay the groundwork for our global understanding of the web of life. Nature centers flourish today in a variety of geographies from coast to coast, managing and interpreting their land, native plants and animals to promote an understanding of nature and natural processes.
This is a wonderful Nature Center tucked into Roswell. If you only do one event here, make it the canoe paddle. There are date night options, family tours and more.
We also love the summer camps, homeschool days, and holiday events.
