Changes on the CNC Campus

I spy with my little eye…

A truck, a crane, planks, and tools?

What? Not the typical items you would expect to see at a nature center. The lower area of CNC’s 127-acre campus is currently the host to the crews and equipment needed to rebuild our 35 plus-year-old, 3,000-foot river boardwalk. While we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused our visitors, we appreciate your patience and are excited for the wonderful new experiences we will be able to offer our guests and members once this project is complete.

CNC’s river boardwalk is a magical spot that takes you into the heart of the Chattahoochee River wetlands and provides an intimate way to experience nature and wildlife. CNC’s boardwalk takes you through the marsh and sounds of frogs, past mud holes and Great Blue Herons, through the cattails and water lilies out to the edge of the river. No other venue on the Chattahoochee River provides this vantage point to observe and learn about the natural world.

Over the next few months, you will see many changes taking place as we work to provide a safe and interrupted route from our main campus to the boardwalk and, ultimately, the Chattahoochee River. Our pathway to the River will allow visitors, including students and those with disabilities, plus wagons or strollers, to interact with the River in a more intuitive way. Come discover the beauty.
