Field Trips

Classes are lead through the park by our highly trained staff of environmental educators for a hands-on learning experience. Our programming reinforces and brings to life the STEM concepts that your students are taught in the classroom. Our field trips are correlated to Georgia Standards of Excellence according to grade level and subject area using academically-based curriculum materials.


We feature four distinct habitats — meadow, stream, wetlands, and forest — that are ideally suited to enhance the fundamentals of environmental science in a controlled setting.
To schedule a homeschool field trip, please email Holly Loscavio, Program Manager, at or call the program office at (770)-394-3322.


If you can’t make it to the Nature Center for a field trip, let us come to you! Each of our environmental programs is tailored to a specific grade and is correlated to the Georgia Standards of Excellence. Expect the program to be packed full of interactive games and hands-on, STEM-based activities that supplement the student’s classroom learning.

Science Nights

The Nature Center offers a variety of hands-on learning experiences for science nights. We can dissect owl pellets with students or have them match skulls, skins, and tracks to native mammals and birds of Georgia. Our lesson can be adapted to every grade level.

Every science night is set-up differently, so please contact us so we can best accommodate your needs. You can contact Holly Loscavio, Program Manager, at or by calling the program office at (770)-394-3322.

Milkweed In The Classroom

The Nature Center collaborates with local elementary schools to educate students about the declining monarch butterfly population and the importance of the native milkweed plant. The Milkweed in the Classroom program includes outreach lessons, an opportunity to grow milkweed plants from seeds, and installing a monarch and milkweed specific pollinator garden at the school.
