I attended a meeting here and it is a beautiful facility. The staff was extremely helpful and I would definitely like to return some time (not for business) and explore it further.

I brought my grandkids there aged 11 and 13 and they had so much fun. First you go through a training period where they show you how to hook your clips. The trainers were very patient and encouraging. There are 5 levels. It takes a while to get the hang of it, but once you do it is really fun,... More

The center is very educational, teaching students about weather and animals. The trails are perfect to spot wildlife on, but that isn't the star of this place.

The Georgia Beekeepers' Assn. held their fall meeting at the center. It is really a wonderful facility perfect for all of our vendors, classes, and shows. The gift shop is really nice, too. Don't miss this valuable resource. Wish I'd had time to take in ALL of the opportunities.
