Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites encourages Georgians to get outside (weather permitting) and enjoy late summer and early fall. Kim Hatcher, the Public Affairs Coordinator, asserts that there are over 60 sites within the park system that offer plenty of wide open spaces to visitors.
Your State Parks Day, an observance of National Public Lands Day, is set for Saturday, September 25th. Admission will be free to volunteers at parks across Georgia, indicates Hatcher.
There are a handful of activities slated for this Saturday at sites in this area, including a flint knapping demonstration at Chief Vann House in Chatsworth, guided tours of New Echota in Calhoun, and a Spinning Day at Pickett’s Mill Battlefield in Dallas.
