On Saturday, May 1st 2021, Autrey Mill is delighted to host our annual fundraising event- Wild About Autrey Mill (WAAM).
Wild About Autrey Mill is an annual event featuring refreshments, musical entertainment, and a silent auction. Bringing together community leaders, supporters, members and friends, Wild About Autrey Mill celebrates the unique natural beauty that is protected and preserved at Autrey Mill. Funds raised support the educational programming that furthers our mission of encouraging exploration and appreciation for historical and natural resources. We hope you will join us in an evening of fun and fundraising celebrating the return of Spring with the theme of “Butterflies, Botanicals, and All Things Wild About Autrey Mill.”
Funds raised by the event will enable our non-profit to expand services and continue to host the Visitor Center and Farm Museum at no cost to the public visitors.
Messages from Honorary Co-Chairs
State Treasurer Lynne Riley, and State Representative Angelika Kausche, have agreed to serve as Honorary Co-Chairs of the event, confirming their strong support of Autrey Mill.
Lynne Riley President, Georgia Student Finance Commission
“As a place of beauty and tranquility nestled in our lively community, Autrey Mill provides the citizens of Johns Creek with a setting to reflect on our heritage and learn more about our natural environment.”
Angelika Kausche State Representative, Georgia House District 50
“Autrey Mill Nature Preserve is a hidden treasure in Johns Creek, a place where history and nature meet to create a unique learning environment. I love the historic buildings in the Heritage Village and the stories that they tell of our community’s long gone farming roots. One of my favorite pastimes is taking my dog on a relaxing stroll through the beautiful wetlands and hardwood forests.”
