About Us

Sandy Creek Nature Center was founded in 1973 by a group of 11 concerned citizens. In 1981, this group deeded the Nature Center to Athens-Clarke County which, to this day, operates the center. Sandy Creek Nature Center, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, continues to work in conjunction with ACC to fund special projects, property improvements and programs.
