Welcome to the Dunwoody Nature Center

Thanksgiving Hours

Our main education building will be closed Wednesday, November 26th through Sunday, November 30th so that our staff can enjoy time with our families. The beautiful 22 acres of Dunwoody Park will remain open during this time from sunrise until sunset. We will re-open the building on Monday, December 1st as we begin the first phase of construction on our front entry. We hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Keep your kids active and engaged with our Winter Break Camps. Join us for 2 days of fun during two separate sessions in December as we explore the winter climate and study its effect on the animals, plants, and habitats of our park. Winter camp is open in half day sessions for 3 & 4 year olds, and full day sessions for Kindergarten through 5th graders.

Support our Annual Fund

Our 2014 Annual Fund is inspired by a quote from Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” With the support of the community at large, the Nature Center has brought significant change to Dunwoody Park with the addition of public restrooms, a screened-in porch, deck, outdoor classrooms, Native American teepee and renovated cabin space. These additions were completed to rave reviews and proudly serve as distinctive features in an ongoing restoration of the meadow gathering area. All of these enhancements are part of a larger strategic plan to position the Nature Center as Dunwoody’s “Central Park” and further allows the center to better serve as a meeting place for scouts, civic, student and volunteer organizations, as well as the more than 25,000 individuals who visit the park each year to reconnect with nature. Funds raised during this year’s campaign will be allocated towards continued improvements on both the grounds and the facilities of Dunwoody Park including sorely needed materials for a planned classroom expansion and additional investments in signage, displays, and other passive education media for park visitors.
