Explore. Learn. Conserve.

Newman Wetlands Center

Who We Are

Newman Wetlands Center is a nature area dedicated to environmental education owned and operated by Clayton County Water Authority. We strive to provide a safe, welcoming environment for community members to come explore and connect to the natural world. We hope that each visitor will have the opportunity to not only find a peaceful place to enjoy nature, but to also develop a deeper understanding of conservation and a passion for protecting our local watersheds.

If you have mobility issues that prevent you from hiking, you can reserve our Action Trackchair to use while you're on site.

Human Connections

NWC is just a small part of our land's story. We invite you to learn about the people who lived on & explored this land before us.

Event Calendar

Throughout the year, Newman Wetlands Center hosts a variety of events dedicated to bringing the community together and providing fun and educational nature experiences.
