The Georgia Department of Natural Resources State Parks & Historic Sites Division wants to encourage people to visit parks more often in 2018. 

They started the year off with a First Day Hike event held in various parks, some of which ended with a polar plunge in the lakes for good luck. Some of the hikes also occurred at night and featured bonfires, s’mores, and warm beverages.

Throughout the year the department offers a range of options depending on the desired activity level. There is a $5 fee to enter state parks; if you intend to visit the parks often, you could save money by purchasing an annual ParkPass for $50. Seniors and active and retired U.S. military members may purchase passes at discounted prices.

To keep up with other outdoor events and activities, follow the Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites website.
