Project Scope

Fernbank Museum of Natural History announced significant expansion plans, which include 75 acres of outdoor experiences. On 10 of these acres, the outdoor expansion offers extraordinary landscapes along with a five-story change in elevation—from dramatic vantage points high in the trees to footpaths winding through rugged terrain. The new paths include two learning tree pods, imaginative play areas, immersive ground trails, unique sensory stations, elevated adventure nets, hands-on water cycle activities, a restored wetland, and a canopy walkway through the trees.
