Thank You to Northside Hospital

Partners in health and wellness


During these times of COVID, health and wellness have become more important than ever. You will see these two words marketed everywhere! At the Chattahoochee Nature Center (CNC), we have lived the values of health and wellness long before this slogan became the latest buzzword. Fortunately, for us, we also have a partner that understands the value of health and wellness to the community and has long practiced these values as well – Northside Hospital.


Running along the Chattahoochee River during the Possum Trot 10K


Four years ago, Northside Hospital began partnering with CNC to help us better educate the community on the important role of nature and being outdoors for our overall health and mental well-being. As a result, CNC has seen tens of thousands of individuals and families through engaging outdoor educational programs such as gardening, nature photography, native Georgia wildlife encounters, as well as active programs such as hiking, canoeing, and ziplining.
