(Early) Earth Day Weekend Events

This year, we have THREE days of Earth Day festivities!

Epic Earth Day

April 12th, 2019

The nature center is bringing some more art to the park this April. Join us as we celebrate Earth Day and National Poetry Month from 7:30 PM – 10:00 PM.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Reconnect with nature in a night full of interactive, educational, and relaxing activities for all ages. The Friday Night Hike will take place as usual, but this time with a few added surprises. While you wait for your hike to start, or if you just want to stop by the Nature Center for some Earth Day festivities, there will be fun activity tables set up to learn about how you can lower your impact on the environment! We will also be celebrating National Poetry Month with an adult and child-friendly nature poem scavenger hunt in the park and other epic poetry-related activities. Stick around for a seat by the fire and grab a cup of hot chocolate, because the night isn’t over. The Astronomy club will be at the park celebrating with us too! All activities are optional, and every guest is welcome to participate in one or all parts of the night.

Check back for more information leading up to the Earth Day weekend. We hope to see you there! Please register below if you will be attending Epic Earth Day and/or the night hike.

Paint Recycling

April 13th, 2019

All morning from 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM noon we will have our annual Paint Recycling event. Do you have buckets of paint that you need to get rid of but aren’t sure how? Bring old paint over to us, and we will take care of the recycling for you!

Sustainability Civic Dinner

April 14th, 2019

The Dunwoody Nature Center will be hosting a Civic Dinner in partnership with the Atlanta Regional Commission. This is a time for diverse members of the Metro Atlanta area to come together, break bread, define sustainability, and explore how we can protect our natural resources both now and in the future. Join us in having a meaningful conversation and a community meal from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM. Spaces are very limited, so please enroll as soon as possible on the ARC website.

Earth Day

April 22nd, 2019

We do not have any special events planned, but please come to the park to enjoy the outdoors this Earth Day. Spend some time reconnecting with nature by walking our trails, playing on the playground, hanging out in the meadow, and watching birds in the gardens.
