Welcome to the Dunwoody Nature Center

Registration now open for Fall Classes

Fall Classes are now forming as we extend the fun of summer into the fall! Experience nature, science and fun at our classes through age-appropriate games, crafts, stories, and other seasonal activities. Our classes offer children the ability to learn and explore at their own pace; when real learning and growth comes from play in a guided environment that fosters a unique sense of accomplishment and self-awareness. Each week will feature a customized theme with creative learning activities and adventures developed to re-connect children to the natural world around them.

Theater in the Park

Found Stages Theatre Presents "Beulah Creek" - Opening Night September 12 at 8:00 p.m.

"Beulah Creek" takes place during the summer of 1936 amidst a Baptist camp meeting in South Georgia. When the pastor's wife Ruth meets Iris, the WPA photographer documenting the revival, an unexpected relationship develops and challenges the societal norms of the time. A chorus of women sing Southern hymns and speak biblical text to give Ruth a means of expressing the feelings she does not know or dare to name. When the revival participants grow suspicious of the relationship, Ruth must choose between Iris and the community in which she was raised.
 
Written by Atlanta Playwright Neeley Gossett (2013 Finalist, Alliance Theatre Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition) specifically for the natural, found space of Dunwoody Nature Center, this site specific, outdoor theatre performance will immerse audiences in its story. "Beulah Creek" will be performed on the main stage in the meadow of Dunwoody Park from September 12-14 and then again September 19-21.
