Welcome to the Dunwoody Nature Center

Night Under the Stars


On Friday, November 7th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. join us for a night of star gazing in the early winter sky as the Atlanta Astronomy Club joins us for an evening at Brook Run Park. This is a free family event geared toward both beginners and serious star gazers. Just beginning - learn how to find the Ursa Major and Ursa Minor... the best known of all the constellations. More advanced and looking for a challenge? See if you can find Perseus or the Seven Sisters. We might even spot a planet or two. Come and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and learn about the stars in the sky during this free evening under the stars. Advanced registration is appreciated.

Keep your kids active and engaged with our Thanksgiving and Winter Break Camps. During Thanksgiving week, join us for two days of fun and adventure as we explore the earth's bounty and learn to appreciate all that nature has to offer. We'll spend the day with nature themed crafts, activities, games and outdoor play as we explore the habitats of Dunwoody Park. Then come back in December as we explore the winter climate and study its effect on the animals, plants, and habitats of our park. Winter camp is open in half day sessions for 3 & 4 year olds, and full day sessions for Kindergarten through 5th graders.
