Welcome to the Dunwoody Nature Center

The Milkweed Project

The Nature Center is embarking on a major initiative to help protect the monarch butterfly and raise awareness of the troubling decline of the population. We will be rolling out our program in the coming weeks, leading into Monarchs & Margaritas, and have some great programs already in place. Below, is a full synopsis of the issue, what can be done, and what the Nature Center proposes to do. As you’ll see from the materials below, there is a simple, elegant solution to the problem.

Choose a sun or shade combo or make up your own design from the plants we’re offering. These beautiful containers will give you days and days of enjoyment; plus your support benefits the programming of the Nature Center! In support of our Milkweed Project (stay tuned for more information), we'll also be providing a free milkweed plant to everyone that purchases plants during our plant sale!
