Reindeer Day at Chattahoochee Nature Center
Catching a reindeer on the roof on Christmas Eve can be a tough task to tackle. Chattahoochee Nature Center makes this holiday dream come true and brings Santa’s coursers to you. Guests hang around a campfire and meet live reindeer. A special story-time takes place at 1 p.m. A program titled “Creatures” follows at 2 p.m. and explains how native animals adapt during our chillier months. Kids can dive into interactive arts and crafts and have the opportunity to touch real deer antlers and beaver furs. Expect an appearance from Santa Turtle.
