Chattahoochee Nature Center

The Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell has announced a partnership with the Georgia Public Library Service, allowing library card holders to access free passes to CNC. Through a library loan program, all 407 public libraries in Georgia will receive passes to CNC, which can be checked out by patrons just like any other library item. This pass is good for four people to get free general admission to CNC’s 127 acre site in Roswell.

“This program enables families to freely access one of metro Atlanta’s best ways to connect with nature through the Chattahoochee River or our 127 acres of hiking trails, forests, and wetlands, while also encouraging them to visit their local library,” said Chris Nelson, CNC’s executive director. With their free admission, pass holders gain admission all day to CNC to enjoy picnicking, hiking trails, family fun days, aviaries with wild birds, concerts, and plenty of activities for all ages.

CNC is open seven days a week, year-round. During summer months, CNC’s popular Butterfly Encounter is open every day, allowing guests to walk among hundreds of butterflies.

“Our partnership with the Chattahoochee Nature Center fits both of our core missions of encouraging learning throughout the state,” said State Librarian Julie Walker. “We hope families will enjoy two of Georgia's greatest resources, CNC and public libraries, year round through this free pass.”
