Explore, Learn About Nature At Elachee Nature Science Center

Posted: Updated:
GAINESVILLE, Ga. -
Summer is the perfect time to get out and explore nature.  And there's no better place to do it than at one of North Georgia's most beautiful and unique environmental education centers.
 
Elachee Nature Science Center in Gainesville sits on the 1,400-acre Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve, and includes both indoor and outdoor opportunities to explore.  The Dunlap/Armstrong Museum Building includes interactive displays, classrooms, and a Nature Shop.  Meanwhile, a two-and-a-half mile hike away, visitors can check out the Chicopee Woods Aquatic Studies Center and Chicopee Lake, including a boardwalk and pavilion (and really good bird watching!). 
 
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken -- fan of any kind of exploring -- decided to check out Elachee Nature Science Center and spend a morning looking around.  Click the videos above for a look!
