Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell partners with the Georgia Public Library Service allowing library card holders access to complimentary admission.

Through a library loan program, all 407 public libraries in Georgia will receive passes to Chattahoochee Nature Center, which can be checked out by patrons similar to any other library item.

The pass is valid for four people to gain free general admission to the nature center's 127 acre site.

“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 Chattahoochee Nature Center Executive Director Chris Nelson.

With admission, pass holders gain all day access to the nature center "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, the "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," said Walker.
