Sandy Creek Nature Center
Clarke County, Georgia
34.0°N 83.4°W


Sandy Creek Nature Center is a gateway to outdoor exploration, featuring 225 acres of woodlands and wetlands. Discover Life is partnering with Athens-Clarke County Department of Leisure Services and the University of Georgia to build a biodiversity observation site at Sandy Creek. As we outline in the proposals below, our goals are to teach science and empower our local community to generate the knowledge that society needs to understand and solve pressing environmental issues. In April, 2013, we launched a permanent mothing site at the Walker Hall to document using photography the nightly flight activity of over 1,100 local moth species. Please join us in this effort.
