Do you love shiitakes? Wouldn’t
you love to go in your yard and pick your own? Come to the Shiitake Log
workshop and leave with your very own hand crafted shiitake log and the
knowledge to make more as we show you the proper way to inoculate logs
for shiitake cultivation.
Atlanta-based "2 FunGuys" (http://www.2funguys.com/) will provide all
the material and knowledge for this “hands on” workshop and they will
also have extra spawn for sale that you can purchase and make more
As a 501(c)(3) that charges no admission fee to use our park, the Nature Center depends on members like you for all of our programs and our daily operations. All great cities have their own “Central Park,” and the Nature Center is that destination in our community. As the meeting place for over two decades for nature enthusiasts, Boy and Girl Scouts, gardeners, and community volunteers, we are a home for those who need a place to call their own in the middle of a bustling city. Every visitor to the park, every participant in a class, and every volunteer has the opportunity to see environmental education in action. We believe in opening eyes and minds to the beauty of nature, providing information about the plants and animals native to Dunwoody and the Piedmont, and exploring the relationships among all inhabitants of the area, as well as the impact human activities have on the environment. In essence:
We are a “theme” park, and our “theme” is nature.Your membership helps to keep the Dunwoody Nature Center a jewel of the community and helps us to continue preserve and improve this rare green space of 22 acres in Dunwoody Park. You can help us achieve our mission by becoming a member today:
