The Chattahoochee Nature Center is located on the Chattahoochee River in Roswell and sits on a beautiful site comprised of 127 acres of native plants and gardens that showcase the beauty of Georgia. Our property includes a River Boardwalk, Discovery Center, wetland demonstration gardens and woodland trails that are home to over 50 species of injured, non-releasable wildlife. For nearly 40 years, the Nature Center has continued to grow and reach out to citizens as a place to explore new ideas and expand the awareness of the natural world.
In 2018, The Chattahoochee Nature Center and American Adventure Park formed a partnership to bring aerial adventure to The Chattahoochee Nature Center. Guests now have the amazing opportunity to experience nature from a birds eye view.
Screaming Eagle at The Chattahoochee Nature Center is a subsidiary of Historic Banning Mills: a non profit conservancy center. Proceeds of the zip line canopy tours are used to help subsidize all of our educational, leadership and conservancy programs. Our aerial adventure tours help to keep our outdoor education experiences affordable to schools and youth organizations.
