Meet our Nature Exchange Naturalists


Andrew started at the Chattahoochee Nature Center as a docent when he was 16 years old. He went out into the world to learn about riparian zones and controlling rain water run-off. He brings his love and ever growing knowledge of nature to the Nature Exchange.




Brian is a proud Eagle Scout and has always been involved with the outdoors. He grew up in South Florida among the Everglades and at the beach, and was active hiking, camping, canoeing, snorkeling, scuba diving and surfing. Now after 35 years in Georgia he continues to enjoy hiking, camping, canoeing and rafting with his daughters as they grow.
