We connect you with nature

Whether it’s hiking, canoeing, or just taking a stroll, CNC has something for everyone. With 127 acres on the Chattahoochee River, the possibilities for fun with nature are infinite! Learn all about your backyard with the only Nature Exchange in the Southeast, or explore the birds of prey in the aviaries of the Wildlife Walk. Bring the family, have a picnic, and make a day of it!

Due to the recent confirmation of HPAI (Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza) in Henry County, CNC has temporarily taken the Bald Eagles off exhibit out of an abundance of caution.
