As the headquarters for the Chattanooga Audubon Society, Audubon Acres includes the Visitor's Center, staff offices, and a small museum tracing the human habitation history of the property. Bisected by South Chickamauga Creek, the Elise Chapin Sanctuary contains a rich diversity of plant and animal life. The forested portions of the property are predominately mixed bottomland hardwood with mixed upland species covering the slopes and ridges. There are more than four miles of walking and hiking trails on both sides of the creek. Picnic tables, a group fire circle, and a tent campsite are available for visitor use. Description via
