The Wylde center
The Wylde Center’s mission is to educate, cultivate greenspaces, and build community in the areas we serve.
The Wylde Center was founded in 1997 to provide opportunities to experience nature in an urban environment. The Center accomplishes its mission through educational programs, events, and greenspaces that actively engage youth, families, and individuals over issues such as the environment, health and community. Programming also helps participants develop skills in environmental science, sustainable urban living, organic gardening, health, and nutrition. The organization operates five green spaces in four different neighborhoods of Atlanta and Decatur that are open year-round and provides one of the largest youth environmental and science education programs in metro Atlanta.
