I bet you did not know there is a beautiful forest wildlife preserve located on Roswell Road next to the North Fulton Service Center.The John Ripley Forbes Big Trees Forest Preserve is a beautiful and unique 30-acre Sandy Springs tree, plant, and wildlife sanctuary.

It is designed and managed as a forest education center offering 1-1/2 miles of walking trails. The site ncludes hilly topography, two creeks, and a diverse middle growth forest including some large 100- and 200-year-old white oak trees. Visitors can pick up a self-guided trail tour brochure at the Preserve entrance.

But be forewarned – this is a place for reflection and quiet – so older children may appreciate it more than young ones.There is plenty of parking when you go.  The preserve is a volunteer site for the 2008 Volunteer For  A Better Sandy Springs on Saturday, April 26, 2008.  Volunteering at the Preserve is a great way to meet the dedicated staff as will learn more about this wonderful Sandy Springs resource.  Click here for more information about Volunteer For  A Better Sandy Springs.Click here for the John Ripley Forbes Big Trees Forest Preserve website.
