Earth Day Paint Recycling

Thinking about doing some spring cleaning? Now’s the time to gather all of those old cans of paint lying around the house to bring in for recycling (yes, the old paint is recycled and used again!) during the Nature Center’s Earth Day Paint Recycling Event on Saturday, April 26th from 10:00 until 4:00. For a fee of $1 per gallon, residents can drop off any unwanted paints and promote healthier air and water quality in the process.

Leaders-in-Training and Environmental Stewardship

Applications Due April 20th!!!


Dunwoody Nature Center’s LITES program provides an opportunity for youth from rising 9th grade to rising 12th grade to engage in leadership training and transfer those skills to environmental stewardship.

Using a nationally recognized leadership curriculum, LITs will spend the week learning leadership awareness while emphasizing nature based problem solving. The goal of the camp is to teach young leaders how to use their leadership skills to address environmental problems thus encouraging a lifelong commitment to environmental stewardship.

We're so excited about our summer camp lineup featuring several all new camp themes as well as our camper's favorites from years' past. Last year, nearly every one of our camps filled to capacity so don't delay!
