173 acres of the Georgia International Horse Park have been designated as a nature preserve devoted to the preservation and study of native plants and wildlife.

Opened to the public in 2007, The Nature Center features a canoe launch, observation platform and a boardwalk and viewfinder in the northern portion of the woodlands.

Discovery stations depicting the eco-system and the plants and animals that call it home were installed as well as audio interactive stations allowing visitors to identify sounds throughout the wetlands.  Touch stations encourage visitors to feel their way through The Big Haynes Creek Nature Center by identifying tracks of the animals living in the area.  

More than five miles of trails wind their way through the nature center to accommodate hikers, mountain bikers and horse enthusiasts.

Open year round from sunrise to sunset. Fishing is not allowed.
