Family Programs at Sandy Creek Nature Center

The Athens-Clarke County Leisure Services Department will present a variety of nature education programs for families this summer at Sandy Creek Nature Center (SCNC).

“Naturalist’s Walks” are planned for Saturdays, June 1, July 6, and August 3 from 10:00-11:00 a.m. Join naturalists as we discover the beauty of summer.

“Nature’s Trading Post” is scheduled for Saturdays, June 1, July 6, and August 3 from 11:00 a.m. - noon. The trading post is open! Trade one or two objects you have found in nature for points or other natural objects in our collection.

“Critter Tales” will take place Saturdays, June 8, July 13, and August 10 from 2:30-3:00 p.m. Participants will hear a story about nature and then staff will bring it to life by visiting a critter or going outdoors for an activity. A different tale is read each month.

All of these programs are free of charge and registration is not required.
