Our renovated and expanded classroom spaces received rave reviews in 2014 and now include our main education building, porch, cabin, Native American Teepee, and Foxes Den. Year after year, our camps achieve satisfaction ratings of nearly 100% and most of our new camp families each summer come as referrals from other campers! This past summer, the Nature Center served over 750 children through our camps at Dunwoody Park and Island Ford. Were their parents satisfied? You Bet! Among surveyed respondents, 99% said that they would recommend the Nature Center's camps to a friend and 98% plan to return again this summer.
We're so excited about our summer camp lineup for 2015 that features several new camp themes as well as our many of our camper's favorites from years' past. Don't forget, early registration opens February 1st FOR MEMBERS ONLY and then on February 15th for the general public. Last year, every one of our camps filled to capacity (some during the "member only" registration period) so don't delay!
Your membership will help us to continue to improve Dunwoody Park and comes with the satisfaction of knowing that every visitor, friend and member has their own special haven that makes the Nature Center home to us all.

All great cities have their own "Central Park," and the Nature Center is that destination in our community. We believe in opening eyes and minds to the beauty of nature. We are a communal place to gather, learn, and be inspired by a green preserve whose lush grounds are a place of respite and an enclave of cultural activity. Our programs also extend beyond "just being green" to include outdoor concerts, theater productions, festivals, holiday and summer camps, and a variety of classes and adult programming like photography, yoga and beekeeping.
