Overview

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!

My family took me to enjoy the day outside. We enjoyed a picnic lunch and walked through the exhibits and several trails. My teenagers asked to return as it was such a great time!

Just go to expend a nice day walking and stopping to see the different wildlife around. Makes you think you are in the woods and you are a few paces from Roswell.

Love coming to the Chattahoochee Nature Center to hike around the trails, see all of the rescued animals and enjoy some peace and quiet in Roswell. There are often special events that are a must!
