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.

Walkers may choose to remain on several paved paths, but there are also unpaved, strenuous and moderate paths to enjoy.

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.

We bike here frequently and enjoy the mixture of the scenery along the river, hard trails and natural terrain, so close to Mall of Georgia but secluded and peaceful. A good little 6-8 mile ride if you double back and you can get a nice workout.
