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. Bring a picnic, visit the Nature Store, watch the movie (Re-Imagine the Chattahoochee) and enjoy learning about the Chattahoochee River and environs and the native plants and animals that call this place home.

Regular programming takes place, check the website for times and dates of special events that are family friendly. The Nature Exchange in the Discovery Center is a trader's delight! Learn more on our daily calendar, to plan your visit.

I came here to visit the reindeer and was very disappointed. The flyer for the event was from 12-4 to visit the reindeer, yet the reindeer left at 2:45?! My little brother was very upset and shame on the reserve for false advertising.

First of all, this is a wildlife rehabilitation center, so when you visit, you are helping to rehabilitate injured Georgia Wildlife. They have lots of cool native wildlife for you to see. Great Horned Owls, Bald Eagles, Opossums, snakes, turtles and Red Tailed Hawks to name a few. Also, 2 new young beavers have just been put on exhibit. It... More

Interesting nature exhibits. Where else can you see a pair of bald eagles up close? Low-key, but well done. Helpful staff. We went on the evening canoe trip down the Chattahoochee - strongly recommended. Great guides, fun trip, easy paddling. We saw lots of interesting wildlife

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, beautiful grounds,lovely trail walks through the woods, tons of plant life that are amazing. They were setting up for an outdoor wedding in one area, and a birthday party going on in another area. All of the trails are under a half mile, but with rolling terrain you can get your excise.

The Chattahoochee Nature Center is a relic place to take a walk, view some animals, watch a film, or learn about the natural environment. The walking paths are gentle and a long boardwalk goes out to the Chattahoochee River, a site protected by the National Park Service.
