Celebrate Our 85th Anniversary: Hidden Gems, Geocaching & Hikes
Happy birthday to us! Come celebrate our 85th anniversary at a Georgia State Park or Historic Site near you. There will be giveaways, contests, promotions, hikes and so much more planned this year, so stay tuned and check back frequently for updates. Trivia: Did you know Georgia has two of the oldest state parks in the nation? Indian Springs and Vogel. Treasure-hunt fans have a new quest that takes them from Georgia’s mountains to marshes.
Georgia Geo-Campers volunteers have created a birthday geocaching game; only 1,000 of the limited-edition coins are out there, so get caching!
