Audubon Acres

Audubon Acres is a Nature preserve in Hamilton County, Tennessee. This nature preserve consists of a tranquil park along a creek featuring wooded trails, seasonal wildflowers, and tube/canoe rentals. This beautiful retreat serves as the headquarters of the Chattanooga Audubon Society and highlights a Visitor’s Center, gift shop, many shows, including and a timeline museum outlining the human home on the property, and the Avian Jewels Egg Collection. Audubon Acres Nature Sanctuary is 130 acres and is divided by the South Chickamauga Creek. It contains a magnificent variety of plant and animal life. Each day, nature surprises its visitors with something different to see, hear, smell, and adventure. The forest sections of the park are mixed with species that cover the slopes and ridges. In the spring, the birds and wildflowers make themselves known and in the fall the colors are always a sight to see. There are five miles of walking and hiking trails that run on both sides of the creek and picnic tables and a fire ring for people with groups.

As you explore the trails, you could see that some of the trees are marked with green signs as a part of the Cherokee Arboretum. These signs hold their scientific common tree names and Cherokee names. Many native people gave different names to the plants. The southeastern edge of the property belongs to the Little Owl Village, which was the site of an archeological dig in the early 1990s. Though the site has had the name of the brother of Chief Dragging Canoe for a long while, it was first founded in the Chickamauga town by a Cherokee. It was first discovered in the 1770s, but the date when it was actually established is unknown. The Spring Frog Cabin sits on the highest hill on the original farm property. This cabin was first found near the railroad tracks and they think it was built in the mid-1700s with Native construction.
