I am sorry to say but I think you should be embarrassed to charge money for what little you have to offer.

Bring bug spray and wear long pants! It is a nature refuge and the trails are safe enough for shorts if you're careful AND know what you're watching for (poison ivy) but if you are at all unfamiliar, just wear long pants. And bug spray will keep you from getting eaten up when visiting animals.

From Our Editors

Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center, a nature preserve and landscape park, began as a vision in the 1920’s by John and Margaret Chambliss. In the late 1970s, a group of forward thinkers hatched an ambitious plan to bring Chattanooga citizens closer to nature. With the help of the Junior League of Chattanooga, the group raised more than $500,000. In September 1979, The Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center was born. Since then, the center has had more than half a million visitors to explore its 317 acres containing a certified level IV arboretum, Civil War and Cherokee history, botanical gardens, and native plants, as well as raising awareness with educational programs for adults at schoolchildren. Their efforts have helped to conserve the approximately 45 native animal species inhabiting the Wildlife Wanderland, These animal species include a bald eagle, sandhill cranes, and endangered red wolves.

State-of-the-art when it was built, the environmentally engineered main building has remained largely unchanged over the past 33 years. Features such as solar-heating systems, southern-facing windows, and 99% natural R-38 insulation continue to model sustainable-building practices to park visitors and squirrels looking to passively heat their nests.
