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.
