IN a NUTSHELL: Over the decades we Atlanta Outdoor Club hikers and nature lovers have become big fans of the Chattahoochee Nature Center (CNC) and are delighted that we share the same mission of "connecting people with nature." The CNC has a thriving "Nature Club" and they have graciously invited us to participate in their March meeting. It will begin with a delicious Potluck Dinner in their "Plaza Conference Room" and will conclude with a ~1-hour presentation about "The Mysteries of Plants." Please bring $10 in cash to chip in to the CNC meeting registrar for admission and parking - or $5 if you're a CNC member or regular volunteer. (See more details below, including precise Directions and suggestions about What to Bring.) Registrants for this event are also encouraged to register for our optional 5:30 PM AOC Riverwalk Hike that will immediately precede the 7:00 PM dinner and use the same convenient CNC parking lot.
Here's the Center's invitation, excerpted from their http://www.chattnaturecenter.org/adults/the-nature-club/ webpage:
The Nature Club of the Chattahoochee Nature Center invites you to participate in our March 22nd potluck (at 7:00 PM) and mingle with folks with similar environmental interests. Then join our speaker (at ~7:30) for a fascinating presentation - see more below.
POTLUCK DINNER DETAILS, 7:00 - 7:30 PM: Hope you can arrive in time to join us for this festive and friendly monthly Nature Club dinner that will precede the above-discussed presentation in the same "Plaza Conference Room" - see Directions below. Please bring a food or beverage item of your choice to contribute - preferably something that you enjoy personally, and no need to bring more than about a half dozen servings of your chosen item. The Nature Center's policy is to minimize disposable plastics, etc. and they'll provide washable plates, cups, dining utensils, etc. for everyone to use.
