General

  • Mission:
  • The Mission of the Chattahoochee Nature Center is to provide unique learning experiences focused on the Chattahoochee River that connect people to the natural world and empower them to positively impact their local environments.

    We value:
    Providing life long learning opportunities
    Our role as a vital part of the community's educational, scientific and cultural life.
    Fostering a personal awareness that we are 'a part of' and not 'apart from' the natural world
    Honesty and integrity
    Our goal for the youth community: to foster an active awareness and understanding of the ecology of the natural world through interactive, hands-on learning experiences.

    Our goal for the adult community: to provide a local place for adult learning experiences, volunteerism, and outdoor family activities that strengthens the environmental stewardship commitment within the community.


  • History:
  • Since it’s inception in 1976, CNC has been leading the way in hands-on, environmental learning programs across metro-Atlanta reaching over 40,000 students annually. Over the past thirty-three years, CNC has grown to be one of the largest non-profit environmental education leaders in the state serving over 100,000 visitors annually. CNC does not advocate or lobby, but rather focuses on educating citizens about the science of the natural world and our role in it.

    CNC, with a staff of twenty-four, offers a superb combination of highly accredited natural science instructors along with 127 acres of forest, wetlands and river that creates an exceptional outdoor learning experience, in addition to ongoing indoor exhibits, horticultural programs and a wildlife rehabilitation clinic.

    Building upon the Chattahoochee Nature Center’s unique position on the river, and our history of excellence in environmental education, our goal is to continue to promote an understanding and appreciation for the natural environment so that visitors who come here to learn will take their experiences out into the world as better stewards of the environments in which they live.
