connect people with nature.



OUR MISSION is to connect people with nature.

For more than 40 years, the Chattahoochee Nature Center has inspired both naturalists and citizens to build one of the most unique places on the Chattahoochee River.

Founded by local citizen activists in the mid-1970s, the Chattahoochee Nature Center has been nurtured by hundreds of people who have worked to build a strong grassroots environmental learning center, touching the lives of more than 130,000 children and adults each year.

In metro Atlanta, no other place offers our community the opportunity to connect to such a broad circle of activities and experiences in the natural world: the land, water, wildlife, plants, educators, knowledge and passion, which we share freely with all visitors. The Chattahoochee Nature Center is a unique place where people connect to each other and the land through a shared respect for nature.  It’s through that interaction with nature that we excite our senses and encourage learning. Visit us today and experience the wonders of Chattahoochee Nature Center.
