This year, the Center is hosting multiple programs to help keep you in and out of the cold. There is an author program series where several authors are on site to discuss their work. It is a great way for you to learn about new literature and to connect with authors that you may not be familiar with.

Another great place to check out is the Fernbank Museum located at 767 Clifton Road NE. Fernbank Museum specializes in active learning experiences where you can participate in educational activities. You can be a part of the hands-on science experiments happening every day. There is also a 4K theater with a range of educational movies in a large and immersive format. You can also explore the natural features found on the grounds including several old-growth trees, and the myriad of fossils that the Museum collected over the years.
