Chattahoochee Nature Center (CNC) is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization supported by its members and community at large, making it possible to provide environmental education programs that are unsurpassed in Georgia.
CNC’s mission is to connect people with nature. For almost 50 years, CNC has inspired both naturalists and citizens to build one of the most unique places on the Chattahoochee River. Founded by local citizen activists in the mid-1970s, CNC has been nurtured by hundreds of people who have worked to build a strong grassroots environmental learning center, touching the lives of more than 130,000 children and adults each year.
In metro Atlanta, no other place offers the community the opportunity to connect to such a broad circle of activities and experiences in the natural world: the land, water, wildlife, plants, educators, knowledge, and passion, which is shared freely with all visitors. Chattahoochee Nature Center is a unique place where people connect to each other and the land through a shared respect for nature. Through that interaction with nature, we excite our senses and encourage learning.
