Mill Creek Nature Center

Mill Creek Nature Center is a wetlands/wildlife preserve in Gwinnett County, owned and managed by the Georgia Wildlife Federation. In May 2003, this 88-acre tract was donated to GWF by the Mall of Georgia Partners. The trails consist of natural and boardwalk pathways, 2 bridges crossing over Ivy Creek, an observation tower, a fifteen-bench and stage amphitheatre, a raised workstation alongside Little Ivy Creek and several benches along the paths to sit and take in the beauty of your surroundings.

GWF volunteers have been instrumental in developing trails and maintainting the property.  Please consider becoming a volunteer to help us manage the site and continue our wildlife conservation programs.

Upcoming Events:

Earth Day at Mill Creek

Join staff and fellow volunteers as we celebrate Earth Day at Mill Creek Nature Center. From 9 - 11am., we will be pulling Chinese privet, a non-native, invasive plant. For those who don't want to participant in the privet pulling, Sandy Dearth from the Southern Wings Bird Club will lead a guided bird walk beginning at 9:30. At 11, everyone will be asked to assemble at the amphitheater for a fabulous reptile presentation by Cyndi Moore from Reigning Reptiles in Buford. Visitors are welcome to enjoy hiking the trails throughout the day.

Parking is available between the Bird Watcher's Supply Store and Tuesday Morning or across the street at the Mall of Georgia near Dillards. Please look for registration in the gravel lot near Mall of Georgia Blvd at Nature Center Parkway.
