Nature Preserve: Birding, Hike, Picnic, Walk
Forty Oaks Nature preserve is a 10-acre site with trails, a small human-made bog, hardwoods, small drainage stream, and an organic community garden. This property originally belonged to the Sutton family and in 1970 the family donated half of the property to DeKalb County Parks Department with the understanding that the Parks department would buy the other half. And so it happened. The old farmhouse has become the office space for both DeKalb Natural Resources section and the Atlanta Outward Bound Center – AmeriCorps EcoWatch.
