Welcome to the Dunwoody Nature Center

Fall Nature Classes

Classes are now forming as we begin a new school year and eagerly await the fall weather. Experience nature, science and fun at our classes through age-appropriate games, crafts, stories, and other seasonal activities. Classes offers children the ability to learn and explore at their own pace; when real learning and growth comes from play in a guided environment that fosters a unique sense of accomplishment and self-awareness. Each week will feature a customized theme with creative learning activities and adventures developed to re-connect children to the natural world around them.
