Bear Creek Nature Preserve

October 24, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

The new Bear Creek Nature Center and trails complex is located in South Fulton County at the same location as the previous Cochran Mills Nature Center. We’ll start at the visitor’s center parking lot and walk about 3 miles along trails that include the Bear Creek trail, rock outcrops and a waterfall on Little Bear Creek.

We’ll enjoy the diverse forest in these rocky woods with several stream crossings and overlooks. We’ll likely see early fall leaf color of Winged Elm along with a few of the late-blooming wildflowers such as the Blue Gentian.

We’ll be outside the entire time so we can remain socially distanced and we’ll wear masks when we are walking along trails or 6 feet apart. At the end of our walk you are welcome to tour the visitor’s center, or see some of the resident raptors in the outdoor wildlife rehab area.

To register (RSVP) click HERE  – Details and directions sent to registered participants (limit 15)

A donation of $15 or more helps sustain our programs.
