Bear Creek Nature Center is a private non-profit started to spread the joy of nature and the outdoor world. Since opening in the Spring of 2020, our goal is to teach children and families about our environment, hoping that they will be more environmentally aware of their actions. We teach a wide range of environmental and wildlife sciences, including zoology, botany, and ecology.
We’re proud to be the only nature center in Georgia with live bats on exhibit. We also have several reptiles and birds of prey living with us as education animals. They help us make sure everyone gets to see nature in up close and stays safe doing it.
