Nestled in a bend of the Chattahoochee River in a hardwood wetland, Oxbow Meadows is a place where nature can be itself. Two walking trails wind between ponds taking hikers into the realm of native flora and fauna. For the nature lover, butterflies, birds, turtles and dragonflies can be found in abundance. The Environmental Learning Center is a hands-on interpretative facility focusing on the natural history of the region.
