Sandy Creek Nature Center is a gateway to outdoor exploration.  The property features 225 acres of woodlands and wetlands with over 4 miles of trails, including an ADA interpretive trail and connections to the North Oconee River Greenway and Cook's Trail.

The SPLOST-funded Education & Visitor Center includes live reptiles, amphibians, marine and freshwater aquariums, interactive natural history exhibits, and an incredible resource library, all housed in an eco-friendly building.  
There is also a circa 1815 log house and several wildlife observation areas on site.
