CNC Encourages Responsible Collecting

The Chattahoochee Nature Center supports stewardship of the living world and the preservation of biodiversity. We encourage traders to thoughtfully consider the effects of their actions when enjoying the natural world. Tread lightly as you go, and never take more than what you need.
