Planting Trees for the Future – Your State Parks Day
Saturday, Sep 24, 2016 9 AM to 12 PM
Hofwyl Plantation has hundreds of centuries old, historic live oak trees. However, through the years a number of trees have naturally died leaving empty places in the landscape. Will will be transplanting saplings to fill these spaces. Tools will be provided, bring gloves and insect repellent. 912-264-7333.
It’s easy to see why geocaching is rapidly becoming one of the most popular outdoor activities in Georgia State Parks. It combines the high-tech feel of online games with the old-fashioned fun of a treasure hunt.
Using a GPS or smartphone with a GPS app, you search 57 parks and historic sites around the state to discover hidden containers or “caches” that contain a small prize. (The coordinates to all caches are available online at geocaching.com.) Take a prize and leave one for the next person. After signing the logbook, go back online and share your experience.
