A 225 acre natural area with more than five miles of foot trails and one of the first "green" buildings in the state. The 11,400-square-foot ENSAT building contains hands-on, interactive exhibits and teaching space that includes live animals as well as both fresh and salt water tanks, including a live logger head sea turtle. Sandy Creek Nature Center currently serves as the northern terminus of the North Oconee River Greenway (the 3+ mile paved mutli-use trail connecting the Nature Center to the University of Georgia) and also serves as the southern terminus of the Sandy Creek Greenway/Cook's Trail. Sandy Creek Greenway/Cook's Trail is a 450 acre natural area that extends along Sandy Creek over 4 miles north and includes Cook's Trail (4 miles) and the Oxbow Lake loop (1 mile). This natural area contains marsh, beaver swamp, and more than 3,000 linear feet of boardwalk.
