Sandy Creek Nature Center is a gateway to outdoor exploration. The property features 225 acres of woodlands and wetlands with over 4 miles of trails, including an ADA interpretive trail and connections to the North Oconee River Greenway and Cook’s Trail.
The SPLOST-funded Education & Visitor Center includes live reptiles, amphibians, marine and freshwater aquariums, interactive natural history exhibits, and an incredible resource library, all housed in an eco-friendly building. There is also a circa 1815 log house and several wildlife observation areas on site.
The Athens-Clarke County Leisure Services has online registration for programs for adults and children. All activities are open to Athens-Clarke County residents and non county residents.
