Dunwoody Pollinator Tour
Dunwoody Nature Center
Join the Georgia Conservancy and Dunwoody Nature Center staff for a pollinator program and tour of the nature center on Saturday, August 26th from 10 AM - Noon. This is the Dunwoody Nature Center's 25th anniversary as a non-profit organization. DNC aims to inspire the love of nature and to cultivate environmental understanding and stewardship through a variety of programs and activities that engage the public and provide the community with a sense of place within the natural world.
Participants will learn about two important pollinators - butterflies and bees. We will hike around the nature center touring a pollinator garden specifically made with the Monarch butterfly in mind. Participants will also observe an active bee hive, learning about the life cycle of the bee and how these creatures make honey. After the program, hike the trails and explore on your own. Feel free to bring your own lunch and enjoy a picnic by the creek or playground.

- About the Dunwoody Nature Center: "Dunwoody Park began as a part of America’s Bicentennial celebrations in 1975 when a group of citizens petitioned DeKalb County to purchase the acreage known as Dunwoody Park with a federal grant. We aim to inspire the love of nature and cultivate environmental understanding and stewardship through a variety of programs and activities that engage the public and provide our community with a sense of place within the natural world.
As a private, non-profit organization operating primarily out of a municipal park, the Nature Center enjoys a strong and supportive public/private partnership with the City of Dunwoody. In addition to running mission based programs throughout the year, we are committed to enhancing and preserving Dunwoody Park for the enjoyment of the community.
We are a living lab that is environmentally sustainable, inclusive and accessible to all.
