Arrowhead Environmental Education Center

Arrowhead is located at the Wildlife Resources Division Game Management Section Regional office near Armuchee. The 337-acre Wildlife Management Area was originally a farming community and later developed into a privately-owned fish hatchery. Bought by the state in 1968, the hatchery was operational until 1979. Today, the 14 hatchery ponds are currently used to aid in the management of waterfowl and wildlife. The site also offers a 2.2-mile interpretive nature trail that encompasses both forested and wetland habitats.

The Arrowhead Environmental Education Center and the Aquatic Center buildings are open only to local sponsoring school systems, which currently include Floyd County Schools and Darlington Schools. The two fishing lakes are open only for "Kids Fishing Events" and to students who visit on school field trips. The center has served over 131,000 students since its inception in 1994. Field trip reservations are recommended three to six months in advance of your desired date(s).

While the education buildings and fishing lakes are not open to the general public, everyone can enjoy the hiking trail.
