Lookout Lake


Lookout Lake is a historic family estate with forest, meadows, and a meandering stream at the foot of Elder and Raccoon mountains.



Ivy Academy is Tennessee's first environmentally-themed public school, serving grades 6-12. Nestled on the south bank of the North Chickamauga Creek Watershed, Ivy's campus creates endless opportunities for learning moments for students enrolled in a forest kindergarten program. The relationship between the satellite program and Ivy's curriculum will foster place based learning for the younger students, and develop a path toward leadership for the Ivy Academy students.



Chattanooga’s oldest wildlife sanctuary, Audubon Acres is a 130-acre hidden gem located in the heart of East Brainerd. Noted for its natural and historical significance, the sanctuary includes hiking trails, a restored Cherokee cabin, swinging bridge, and over a mile frontage on South Chickamauga Creek.
