Ga. parks offer free admission

Georgia’s Department of Natural Resources will offer free admission to all state parks and historic sites on Saturday, Sept. 26, along with free fishing on all public state waters.

“This statewide celebration is a way for us to say ‘thank you’ to hunters, anglers, park visitors, volunteers and conservationists for their support of outdoor recreation,” said DNR Commissioner Chris Clark.

Part of National Public Lands Day and National Hunting and Fishing Day, “GO FOR FREE, GEORGIA” activities include canoeing, archery, skeet shooting, trout fishing, hunting dog demonstrations and more.

State parks will waive the regular $5 parking fee, historic sites will open their doors at no cost, and Georgia residents will be able to fish without a fishing license or trout license on any public waters in the state.
