Performance Event: September 28th, 3:00 – 5:00 pm
Located in the heart of Atlanta’s West End, the Outdoor Activity Center is a 26-acre urban nature preserve dedicated to unplugging youth and invigorating a new connection with Earth.
The OAC has been integral to the Fulton County and Atlanta Public Schools Systems. In past years, elementary and middle schools had annual field trips to the facility. WAWA (Western Atlanta Watershed Association) is trying to rebuild those connections to once again make the OAC a destination of choice for school science-based field trips that correlate to Georgia Performance Standards. The OAC has been an asset and amenity as urban forest and green-space within the largely single-family community of Richland Hills, a low-to-moderate income, environmentally stressed, and under-served area in southwest Atlanta.
