Come help us restore the wetlands! We will be working to remove invasive Chinese privet and other non-natives in and around our wetlands in order to encourage native plant restoration. Join CNC naturalst, Larry Stevens, and help us remove Chinese privet and other invasives from our boardwalk/wetlands area.
Wear closed toed shoes & clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. They supply all the gloves & tools but feel free to bring your own gloves.
Come join me prior to the volunteer work to hike through the Chattahooche Nature Centerm at no charge. We will begin this hike PROMPTLY at 11:30 am so we can spend time on the trails & seeing all the wildlife before our restoration work.
We will meet on the steps outside the Visitor Center.
The Chattahoochee Nature Center is a private, non-profit environmental education facility in Roswell, GA. Located on 127 acres (0.51 km2) adjacent to the Chattahoochee Riverr, the nature center focuses on educational outreach through the use of live flora and fauna.
An on-site wildlife clinic operates at the center for the rehabilitation and release of reptiles, amphibians, and birds of prey. Animals that can not be released back into the wild remain on-site. Many are utilized in displays or for community outreach programs.
Local species of native plants are housed and grown in the center's greenhouse and nursery.
