Special Outdoor Opportunities

It’s true that you can explore the great outdoors INDOORS (and in the air-conditioning) in Fernbank NatureQuest, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the out-outdoors with us as well!

Fernbank Museum is pleased to be able to offer these distinct, guided opportunities to explore some of the most beautiful wooded areas in Atlanta—Fernbank Forest and the Museum’s own backyard!

All programs are included with Museum admission and are FREE for Fernbank members. Advance reservations are required for Bird Walks and Guided Tours at 404.929.6400.
