Entrance Sign - Cochran Mill Nature Center
This place takes in wildlife pets that people no longer want or non-releaseable wildlife that may have been injured beyond total repair. In the late 1980’s, a small group of local residents with a shared passion for the environment believed they could strengthen their community through environmental education and conservation. They secured a 45-year lease on approximately 50 acres of privately-owned land adjacent to Cochran Mill Park, an 800-acre nature preserve owned and managed by Fulton County. This property has become the home of Cochran Mill Nature Center, a private, non-profit organization providing environmental education and wildlife rehabilitation services. The ongoing support and commitment of the community made it possible for the Nature Center to provide year-round educational programming since 1991.
