Go with the F.L.O.W. this Summer at CNC

Connect with Nature Through Fun, Learning, Outdoors, and Wellness

This summer, CNC is grateful to be able to offer our 127 acres as space where you can go with the F.L.O.W. – Fun, Learning, Outdoors, and Wellness – and connect with nature. Through fun festivals, robust programs, exciting exhibits, and beautiful trails and gardens, you will find there is so much to do and explore at CNC this season! Extended hours are back this summer! Opening at 9AM Monday to Saturday. More time to get your nature on.

June kicks off with the 23rd Annual Butterfly Festival celebrating all pollinators and the grand opening of CNC’s most popular seasonal exhibit, the Butterfly Encounter.

You will enjoy learning about the power of pollinators and meet native butterflies up close and personal while making memories with friends and family – a true highlight of the summer season.

Pee Wee Naturalists with Larry (2019)

CNC is also grateful for the wonderful staff and volunteers who share the love of nature with our visitors and members. Pee Wee Naturalist is a quarterly program for the youngest explorers.

CNC Naturalist Larry Stevens has created memories and sparked a love for nature with those lucky explorers that have experienced Pee Wee Naturalists.

A parent shared recently: “[My child] enjoyed today’s class so much! This afternoon he pretended that he was “Mr. Larry” and taught his big brother all he had learned about snakes. So sweet!” Our next Pee Wee Naturalist series begins the first week of June and registration is currently open. Spaces are limited and a great way for you and your budding naturalist to connect with nature.

Get your heart pumping with exciting adventures like ziplining with Screaming Eagle Aerial Adventures, or canoeing with CNC on one of our evening River Canoe Trips.

Get your foot tapping with amazing music, amazing views, and time to relax. Sunset Sips and Sundays on the River are both a great way to experience CNC after hours. 

The River Boardwalk Trail is open and ready for you to explore! The Chattahoochee River and wetlands provide a place to learn, relax, stroll, and connect with nature. We look forward to seeing you this summer to go with the F.L.O.W.
