FERNBANK CELEBRATES FIVE YEARS OF WILDWOODS: On September 24, Fernbank Museum of Natural History celebrates the fifth anniversary of its  WildWoods exhibit. With elevated walkways, interactive exhibits, and old-growth trees, guests are able to explore the wonders of a forest only a stone’s throw away from downtown Atlanta. Since first opening in 2016, WildWoods has drawn visitors from around the world, finding their way into this picturesque space. There is plenty to immerse yourself in on this nature expedition, suitable for all ages and fitness levels, including ADA-accessible trails and experiences. As well, special exhibitions are presented throughout the year, like “Habitat,” “Woodland Spirits’ and “Winter Wonderland.”

To celebrate this ten acres just beyond its walls, Fernbank will host a number of special activities Friday, Sept, 24, including self-led nature activities, Ranger Explorations, and, to the first 100 visitors, giveaways that will include a set of binoculars (one pair per family) and WildWoods trading cards containing facts on wildlife found out in the forest. All giveaways are limited and available only while supplies last. Get there early, take part in the festivities, and step into the wild!
