Public Programs

Engaging Outdoor Experiences for All Ages! 

Enjoy some fresh air and learn about our local habitats. Blue Heron Nature Preserve hosts many wonderful educational events throughout the year, all open to the public.  

Second Saturday Safari

Second Saturday Safari (SSS) is a series of themed educational programs for the public to enjoy! SSS programs happen every 2nd Saturday of every month from April through August.

Blue Heron Nature Preserve invites people of all ages to get outside and learn about nature in an urban environment. SSS programs are hosted by Blue Heron Naturalists and experts from the Atlanta environmental community.

Every event takes participants on a unique outdoor exploration filled with hands-on learning. No one safari is the same. You won’t want to miss out on any of our 2018 dates!
