More than a garden destination, this unique Preserve owned by the City of Johns Creek includes miles of woodland trails, historic buildings, a butterfly garden, and a variety of animal exhibits- including ducks, chickens, a rabbit and more. Autrey Mill has also invited our partner organizations including Fulton County Water Resources, Monarchs Across Georgia, the National Charity League, Young Men’s Service League and Fulton County Master Gardeners to help create a unique array of events and programs. Fulton County Water Resources will have a presentation on Gardening for Water Quality with Native Plants and the AMNP Board will be speaking about our rare native plant, the Lady Slipper.

Proceeds from the luncheon will be earmarked to supplement our mission “to create a destination and educational resource to inspire exploration, appreciation, and preservation of the natural environment and local history.


The Secret Garden Tour stops are conveniently located along the Old Alabama Road corridor, which will allow visitors to relax and enjoy each special property at a leisurely pace. Fulton County Master Gardeners will be answering plant-related questions. Educational presentations will be occurring throughout the day at the Nature Preserve. All proceeds from this event will support the work of Johns Creek Beautification and will be specifically earmarked toward the purchase of public art sculptures for the City, landscape beautification projects throughout Johns Creek, and to benefit an extensive Citywide daffodil planting effort to raise awareness of cancer survivorship through their partnership with CanCare. Many of the attractively landscaped medians along SR141 and State Bridge Road are examples of projects facilitated by Johns Creek Beautification and funded through public and private partnerships.

Passes for the Secret Garden Tour will be made available on the John Creek Beautification website. For additional information please visit the Johns Creek Beautification website at https://www.johnscreekbeautification.org.
