Experience the wonder of
At the Dunwoody Nature Center, we aim to inspire the love of nature and cultivate environmental understanding by providing lifelong environmental education. We offer a variety of programs and activities that engage the public and provide the community with a sense of place within the natural world. We are located in Dunwoody, Georgia, just north of Metro Atlanta.
Things To Do
While we normally host a one-day festival attracting thousands, 2020 will feature a more intimate experience, held over the course of a week, with limited capacity timed slots. Participants will have the opportunity to experience hundreds of butterflies up close and personal in a tent set up inside our North Woods Pavilion.
View our calendar of events
On the second Saturday of each month, the Dunwoody Nature Center hosts a Saturday morning service day for anyone in the community who wishes to volunteer. We welcome high school clubs, service organizations and other groups. It’s a wonderful way to start off your weekend in nature and service.
Forest Bathing Series
Forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku, is a Japanese form of nature therapy that is designed to connect you with nature. Join Robin Hancock, Certified Forest Therapy Guide, for a 2 1/2 – 3 hour session at Dunwoody Nature Center.
