Piedmont Park Conservancy

Discover the wonders of nature right in the heart of Atlanta! Groups will take an hike, and take part in a science experiment activity during programming at Piedmont Park Conservancy. The youngest campers will compare growing up as a human to growing up in the wild, and plant a seed. Groups can visit the garden and orchard and identify, examine, and even taste parts of plants. Explore food webs and adaption on a hike, or examine plants cellular structure under a microscope.  Guided walking tours, scavenger hunts, and self-guided tree tours are also available.

Nature Centers Fun Facts

One single tree can provide the oxygen required for two human beings and over 8,000 sheets of paper. In the United States, we use enough office paper each year to build a 10-foot-high wall that’s 6,815 miles long. That’s more than the distance from New York to Tokyo!

Trees can also clean the soil and air by absorbing harmful pollutants. So what have you done for a tree lately? Nature centers provide a hands-on environment to discover facts about native plants and trees, as well as ways to preserve these natural resources.

Follow up your trip by planting a tree or proposing a conservation program for your group.
