Chattahoochee Nature Center Family Fun Day

Sunday was a beautiful day to attend Chattahoochee Nature Center’s Family Fun Day. This gem is located in Roswell and it is a great place to learn about the Chattahoochee River watershed and the animals and plants found there. Click here for more information about the Nature Center and upcoming events. I went on a bird walk with representatives from the Audubon Society, dropped by booths to collect field trip ideas, visited the live animal exhibits and shows, and just enjoyed being outside on this unseasonably warm day. My favorite part of the day was an interactive lecture by a scientist from the Center for Biologically Inspired Design at Georgia Tech. He spoke about biomimicry or how we are learning to solve human problems by using animals as our model. Photos below are of Beaver Pond, inside the Discovery Center, Tinker Station, Unity Garden, and one of the creature features.
