Nature Exchange Summer Themes and Programs
June 1 - August 31
Regularly Scheduled Programs in Nature Exchange for the Summer
Visit the Nature Exchange for monthly themes and scavenger hunts! Bring your nature items to trade with the Nature Exchange Naturalist. The Nature Exchange is an excellent place to start your Chattahoochee Nature Center adventures. Themes will change monthly and scavenger hunts will change quarterly. (Included with General Admission and Free to CNC Members)
Camp Critters, June–August
This quarter, we highlight some of the organisms you might encounter during a fun-filled day at summer camp. What’s making that buzzing noise in the trees? Is that poison ivy or Virginia creeper? Learn about the flora and fauna you’ll encounter this summer.
Lessons on Lepidoptera, June–August
The Butterfly Festival is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and you can get up close to these insects all summer long in the Butterfly Encounter. After visiting the Encounter, stop by the Nature Exchange to learn all about butterflies and moths.
Colonies, Communities, and Hives, June–August
Just as CNC is part of a broader community, so too are all the plants, animals, and fungi found on the grounds. Join us in the Nature Exchange as we explore the many different communities, colonies, hives, and more that can be found in nature.
Indoor Scavenger Hunt, June–August
Explore the Nature Exchange as you hunt for themed clues to complete our Indoor Scavenger Hunts. There is a new theme each month. Find all the clues and earn NEX points.
Outdoor Scavenger Hunt, June–August
Head outside this quarter and search high and low for answers to our Outdoor Scavenger Hunt. Pick up a scavenger hunt sheet from the Nature Exchange before you hit the trails. The more answers you find, the more NEX points you can earn.
Nature’s Crafters, Throughout June
Arts and crafts are a time-honored tradition at summer camp, and there are many animals that also know the importance of crafting. Come learn about some of nature’s greatest structures and the creatures that make them.
Mesmerizing Metamorphosis, Throughout July
Butterflies go through an amazing transformation during their life cycles, but did you know they’re not the only insects that do this? Familiarize yourself with the different types of metamorphosis as you play a fun card game with your friends.
Symbiotic Systems, Throughout August
Nature is full of partnerships, oftentimes between very different organisms. Sometimes these relationships help both organisms thrive. Sometimes they don’t. Visit the Nature Exchange during August and learn how teamwork can make the dream work—or not.
