20 Years of Nature

Blue Heron Nature Preserve

After three years of fundraising and construction, the first phase of the Blueway Trail is ready for visitors to enjoy at Blue Heron Nature Preserve. At press time, the park was open, with social distancing in place. Get outside, if it's safe for you! 

The North Buckhead environmental center on Roswell Road announced this week two major bridges are now installed connecting 30 acres of green space together with a 3-mile walking trail known as the Blueway Trail. The project has taken 3 years to complete and Blue Heron raised over $750,000 for trail construction and improvements.

“Visitors can now travel seamlessly to all three Blue Heron properties.  It’s a significant milestone as we continue to grow and evolve,” executive director Kevin McCauley said. “Plans for Phase 2 include linking Blue Heron’s trails to nearby Chastain Park and PATH400.”

Blue Heron also celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

Blue Heron Nature Preserve shares its facilities at 4055 Roswell Road with the Atlanta Audubon Society and The Amphibian Foundation, making the Preserve an environmental asset unlike any other in metro-Atlanta.
