Last year, Brownieland Pictures celebrated our 10-year anniversary by volunteering with different nonprofits around Atlanta every month. We wanted to give back to these amazing organizations that help their communities. The Brownieland Team was so inspired by volunteering through our #10in10 Volunteer Campaign that we have decided to continue the work again this year with a different nonprofit each month and to share their stories. We will also check in with the organizations we partnered with last year to find out what’s new in 2018!
In celebration of Keep America Beautiful Month, the Brownieland Team volunteered with Chattahoochee Nature Center (CNC) last April to help with weeding and planting in preparation for their Spring plant sale. You can find out more about our volunteer experience HERE. We checked in with CNC to find out what’s happening this summer at the center!
At Chattahoochee Nature Center (CNC), visitors will find lots of fun activities and events! CNC just wrapped up their Spring sale which was quite successful this year thanks to incredible volunteers who helped with the gardens and greenhouses. Their summer concert series, Sundays on the River, kicks off May 13th with Blair Crimmins and the Hookers, and runs all summer. The EcoTinker Interactive Exhibit offers outdoor nature-inspired tech and tinker station for kids. CNC’s Rockin’ at the River offers a lovely evening outside which includes a fun party, live auction, dinner, dessert, and dancing. A CNC summer tradition, Camp Kingfisher, provides an unforgettable and fun camp experience for children and young adults.
Chattahoochee Nature Center is also gearing up for the 19th Annual Flying Colors Butterfly Festival on June 2nd & 3rd. As their biggest event of the year, people from throughout the country attend this event to experience the Live Butterfly Release. This event marks the summer-long Butterfly Encounter, a large tent-like structure filled with butterflies and the plants they love. Find out more about the event HERE.
Chattahoochee Nature Center (CNC), Atlanta’s Nature Destination, offers community events for children, families, and adults. Dedicated to environmental education, visitors can explore the Discovery Center, Wildlife Journey, Hiking Trails, Gardens and a host of programs and events.
