Healthy Kids, Healthy Planet
These two things go hand-in-hand so join us to see how to eat healthy and be active in our Ready, Set, Grow area. We will have an active area where you can play games from the Atlanta Braves, Hawks, and Falcons PLUS canoe on the CNC pond. Kids (and adults) can hike the property and explore the geocaches that reside here (you must have your own GPS device to hunt for the caches.)
Families can also discover the benefits of healthy produce by getting healthly snacks for the day and by completing a scavenger hunt in our Unity Garden.
